de Broglie Wavelength

Considers an atom behaving as a wave rather than a particle.

The effective wavelength of a particle would be inversely proportional to its momentum, where the constant of proportionality is the Planck constant.

Where

h = Plancks constant = 6.63x10-34Js
m = mass [kg]
v = speed [ms-1]
