Correct me where I'm wrong. De Broglie waves, are extremely small waves of matter equivilant to Planck's constant over the the particles momentum??(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]\frac{h}{p}[/tex]

If so these would be extremely small waves. But if the formula is right, what exactly is the formula porportional too? Frequency, wavelenght???

Thanks
