How do matter waves differ from a light wave as regards the velocity of the particle and the wave?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 4th Jun, 2014, 01:23: PM
In case of matter waves, the wave velocity is different from particle velocity. But in case of light (i.e. electromagnetic wave) the particle (photon) velocity is the same as wave velocity.

- The threshold wavelength of a photosensitive metal is 275nm.calculate the maximum velocity of the photoelectron ejected when light of 180nm is incident on it. How to solve this??
- In the wave picture of light, intensity of light is determined by square of the amplitude of wave. What determines the intensity of light in the photon picture of light?
