At what speed is an electron's de Broglie wavelength (a) , (b) , (c) , and (d) ?

(a)

(b)

(c)

(d)

The electron's de Broglie wave length is

We can start the solution with expression for de-Broglie wavelength

This speed is larger than speed of light, so we must calculate relativistic speed:

The electron's de Broglie wave length is

For we have:

The electron's de Broglie wave length is

For we have:

The electron's de Broglie wave length is

For we have:
