Mass of a neutron (1B.23)

Postby Haley Dveirin 1E » Sun Oct 13, 2019 8:04 pm

For problem 1B.23 it gives the wavelength of a neutron and asks you to find the velocity. I used De Broglies Equation (wavelength= h/(mass x velocity) and plugged in h and wavelength to solve for velocity, but how do I find the mass of the neutron?

You don't have to find the mass, as its given: 1.675*10^-27 kg
