According to Wikipedia,
In physics, the wavelength is the spatial period of a periodic wave—the distance over which the wave’s shape repeats.
Nickzom Calculator requires two parameters to compute the wavelength of a wave or particle. These parameters are:
The formula for computing the wavelength is:
λ = h / mv
λ = Wavelength
h = Planck’s Constant (6.63 x 10-34 js)
m = Mass
v = Velocity
Let’s solve an example, find the wavelength of a wave – particle with a mass of 300 Kg and a velocity of 3 x 1010 m/s.
From the example, we can see that:
m = 300
v = 3 x 1010
λ = 6.63 x 10-34 / 300 (3 x 1010)
λ = 6.63 x 10-34 / 9 x 1012
λ = 7.37 x 10-47
Therefore, the wavelength of the wave – particle (λ) is 7.37 x 10-47.
