Why de Broglie relation is not meaningful to move a cricket ball?
Asked by Kalita Padmanath | 29th Jun, 2016, 11:12: PM
de Broglie relation is valid for moving particles that have both wave like and particle like characteristics. Sub-atomic particles show this behaviour.
A cricket ball does not have any wave like characteristics due to high mass and hence de Broglie equation is not valid for it.

- The de Broglie wavelength of an electron travelling with 20% of velocity of light is nearly equal to
- A light of wavelength 3 × 10 ^- 7 strikes a metal surface. the energy of incident light in electron volt is
- The frequency of a light whose wavelength is 12 metres is
- For hydrogen atom the energy of a photon emitted during a transition from n=2 state to n=1 state is
- The de broglie wavelength of a particle with mass 1kg and velocity 100m/s is

- What is Heisenberg's uncertainty principle?
- On the basis of Heisenberg's uncertainty principle, show that the electron can not exist within the nucleus.
- Calculate the uncertainty in velocity of a cricket ball of mass 0.15 kg if its uncertainty in position is of the order of 1A0
- Calculate the uncertainty in velocity of an electron if uncertainty in its position is of the order of 1 A0.
