Why is the wave nature of particle not observable in daily life?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 19th May, 2014, 04:38: PM
The wavelength associated with macroscopic bodies we deal with in daily life ( ) is so small that wave properties of these bodies go undetected.
For example, the wavelength of a 0.2 kg ball moving with a speed of 15 ms-1 is of order of 10-34 m. This is so small a value to be detected by any instrument at our disposal.

- 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?
