ECE 221 Fall 08 Homework # 2 September 7, 2008 2. 80 pts (a) Show that the de Broglie wavelength of a particle approaches zero faster than 1/v as its speed v approaches the speed of light. (b) Find the de Broglie wavelength of a 15 eV proton. (c) Find the de Broglie wavelength of a 15 keV electron. (d) What is the de Broglie wavelength of an electron whose speed is 9 × 10 7 m/s? (e) Find the wavelength of a 1 kg object whose speed is 1 m/s. (f) Neutrons in equilibrium with matter at room temperature (300 K) have average energy of about 1/25 eV. Such neutrons are often called "thermal" neutrons. Find their de Broglie wavelength. (g) Derive a formula expressing the de Broglie wavelength (in Å) of an electron in
