The de Broglie Relation The de Broglie Relation . The wavelength of the wave associated with any material particle was calculated by analogy with photon as follows:– In case of a photon, if it is assumed to have wave character, its energy is given by E = h ...(i) de Broglie pointed out that the above equation is applicable to any material particle. The mass of the photon is replaced by the mass of the material particle and the velocity c of the photon is replaced by the velocity n of the

Unformatted text preview: material particle. Thus, for any material particle like electron, we may write Thus the significance of de Broglie equation lies in the fact that it relates the particle character with the wave character of matter. Distinction between a particle and a wave . The concept of a particle and a wave can be under-stood by the different points of distinction between them given in table 1....
