🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Medialdea's class at CITYTECH CUNY.

Solution: The electron microscope has been widely used to obtain highly magnified images of biological and other types of materials. When an electron is accelerated through a particular potential field, it attains a speed of 8.95 x 106 m/s. What is the characteristic wavelength of this electron? Is the wavelength comparable to the size of atoms?
