Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The wavelength (in nanometers) associated with a proton moving at 2.90 × 108 m/s in which mass of the proton is 1.673 × 1027 kg should be calculated using the concept of De Broglie’s hypothesis.

Concept Introduction:

De Broglie’s hypothesis explains the behaviour of waves.  Waves behave like particles whereas particles can behave like wave.  De Broglie derived the equation in which the particle and wave properties are related:

λ = hmu

Where, λ - the wavelength associated with a moving particle; h - Planck’s constant; m - the mass of the particle and u - the velocity of the moving particle.

To find: Calculate the wavelength (in nanometers) associated with a proton moving at 2.90 × 108 m/s in which mass of the proton is 1.673 × 1027 kg
