Homework Help: De broglieeeeeeeee

    Hi guys, lets see f=1/λ right? E = hf so f=h/E ==> λ =E/h?? E=hc/λ ==> λ=E/hc? Which part did i get it mixed up?

    For starters, your algebra: "E = hf so f=h/E " and "E=hc/λ ==> λ=E/hc? ". Also look up the universal wave equation: [itex]f \ne 1/\lambda[/itex]
