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

Last Updated on May 6, 2024

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

The formula for calculating velocity:

v = h / λm


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

Let’s solve an example;
Find the velocity when the wavelength is 10, the planck’s constant is 6.626e-34 and the mass is 5.

This implies that;

λ = wavelength = 10
h = Planck’s constant = 6.626e-34
m = mass = 5

v = h / λm
So, v = 6.62607004e-34 (10)(5)
v = 6.62607004e-34 (50)
v = 1.33e-35

Therefore, the velocity is 1.33e-35 m/s.
