I am trying to find the DeBroglie wavelength of an electron moving at(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); .8c. I have never learned special relativity but I believe the momentum is affected (mass change). I used the formulap= (mv)/(1-v^2/c^2)and got a momentum ofp = 2.733 E-22and a wavelength oflamda = 2.4149 E-12. Did I apply the formula correctly for the relativistic momentum?

Thanks for any help
