Textbook 1B.21

Postby derinceltik1K » Sat Oct 19, 2019 4:38 pm

1B.21 A baseball must weigh between 5.00 and 5.25 ounces (1 ounce 5 28.3 g). What is the wavelength of a 5.15-ounce base- ball thrown at 92 mph?
Which equations to use?

You need to change the weight from ounces to kg and the velocity from miles per hour to m/s. Then just use the de Broglie relationship lamba= h/p or h/mv.

We can tell the de Broglie equation must be used because it's relating wavelength, mass, and velocity. The de Broglie uses SI units so you'll have to convert the values given.
