A proton and an electron are both traveling at the same speed. What can we conclude about their de Broglie wavelengths?

C. The wavelength of the proton will be shorter than that of the electron
This is because mp > me
and since wavelength and mass are inversely proportional to each other, the wavelength of the proton will be shorter than that of the electron.
