Solution: In an explanation for the quantized energy levels of atoms de Broglie theorized that orbiting electrons might be at a fixed distance from the nucleus and thus only certain wavelength of wavelike motion would be stable. What is the implication of de Broglie's theory on the movement of matter?     (a) Matter does not behave as though it moves in a wave.     (b) All matter behaves as though it moves in a wave.     (c) Only very fast moving  matter behaves as though it moves in a wave.     (d) Only very low mass matter behaves as though it moves in a wave.     (e) Only very high matter behaves as though it moves in a wave.
