How to Calculate and Solve for Mass | De Broglie’s Law

Last Updated on May 6, 2024

The image above represents mass. To calculate mass, three essential parameters are needed and these parameters are Planck’s Constant (h), Wavelength (λ) and Velocity (v).

The formula for calculating the mass:

m = h / λv


m = mass
λ = wavelength
h = Planck’s constant
v = velocity

Let’s solve an example;
Find the mass when the wavelength is 4, the planck’s constant is 6.626e-34 and the velocity is 2.

This implies that;

λ = wavelength = 4
h = Planck’s constant = 6.626e-34
v = velocity = 2

m = hλv
So, m = 6.62607004e-34(4)(2)
m = 6.62607004e-34(8)
m = 8.28e-35

Therefore, the mass is 8.28e-35 kg.
