Hello all

I have a quick question regarding the derivation of the radius of an electron using the compton wavelength.
Is the following true?
λ = h/mc
where 2*pi*r = λ from quantum angular momentum L = mvr = h/2pi -> mcr = h/2pi -> 2pi*r = h/mc = λ ??
so
r = h/(2*pi*m*c)
???

I just want to make sure that the compton wavelength can be equal to 2*pi*r, where r is the radius of an electron, which is what I am trying to find.

Thanks
Stephen
