Textbook Problem

Explain why you could or could not measure the wavelength of a golf ball in flight.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The wavelength of golf ball in flight can be able to measure or not should be explained.

Concept introduction:

The de Broglie’s equation is used to relate the wavelength to mass of a particle and the velocity at which it moves.

  λ=hmvwhere, h=Planck'sconstantλ=wavelengthm=massoftheparticlev=velocityatwhichtheparticlemoves

Explanation

To calculate the wavelength the golf ball in flight should be taken as wave nature of a particle. The de Broglie’s equation is used to relate the wavelength to mass of a particle and the velocity at which it moves. It indicates that wavelength and mass of a particle is inversely proportional to each other.

As the mass of the particle is increases then wavelength decreases...
