Calculate the de Broglie wavelenght of a 5.5 Mev alpha particle emitted from Am (241) nucleus, could this particle exist with inside the Am (241) nucleus (diameter = 1.6x10^-14m)?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

the wavelenght:

Lambda=h/p = (hc) / (sqrt[2mc^2)xeV)

= 1240 / sqrt(2x3727.38x10^6x5.5x20^6)

???
