Due to time constraints in AP physics we had to skip the chapter on realitivity and now we have problems in the next chapter that request us to use relativity:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

At what energy will the nonrelativistic calculation of the de Broglie wavelength of an electron be in error by 5%?

Any help on exactly what this is even asking would be appreciated.
