Solution: The deBroglie wavelengths of a moving electron are given. Which wavelength would correspond to the greatest speed of the moving electron?a. 8.25 x 10 9 mb. 1.35 x 10 -13 mc. 8.25 x 10 12 md. 1.21 x 10

Solution: The deBroglie wavelengths of a moving electron are given. Which wavelength would correspond to the greatest speed of the moving electron?a. 8.25 x 10 9 mb. 1.35 x 10 -13 mc. 8.25 x 10 12 md. 1.21 x 10

Problem

The deBroglie wavelengths of a moving electron are given. Which wavelength would correspond to the greatest speed of the moving electron?

a. 8.25 x 10 9 m

b. 1.35 x 10 -13 m

c. 8.25 x 10 12 m

d. 1.21 x 10 -6 m

e. 1.21 x 10 -10

Solution

We’re being asked to determine the de Broglie wavelength of an electron corresponding to the greatest speed.


Recall that the de Broglie wavelength (λ) can be calculated using:



λ=hmv


where: 

h = Planck's constant (6.626 × 10–34 kg • m2/s)

m = mass (in kg)

v = velocity (in m/s)
