## Homework Statement

What was the significance of the de Broglie equation?

## Homework Equations

p = h/λ

p = mv

## The Attempt at a Solution

It says that not only do waves act as particles, transferring energy and momentum to matter only at localised points, but moving particles (e.g. electrons) also acts as matter waves, transferring energy and momentum to other matter at points. De Broglie suggested that the first of the two above equations applied to electrons as well as photons.

Hi everyone,

That's what I've written so far. Is there anything I'm missing?

Thanks
