Calculate the de Broglie wavelength (in nm) of a hydrogen atom (m = 1.674×10−27 kg) moving at 1530 cm/s.

check_circleExpert Solution
Step 1

Mass of hydrogen is given as 1.674×10-27 kg.

The velocity of the hydrogen atom is 1530 cm/s. de-Broglie wavelength is the relation which tells the wave nature of matter. It is expressed by equation (1) in which ‘λ&rsq...
