Homework Statement


When an electron moves with a certain de Broglies wavelength, does any aspect of the electrons motion vary with the wavelength.


Homework Equations


λ=h/p
p=mv

The Attempt at a Solution


Ok so I realize that under certain conditions electrons wavelike properties can be viewed. I also realize that he associated the momentum p with wavelength as in the equation λ=h/p. So using algebra v=h/mλ and therefore I could see how electrons motion could vary because depending on the wavelength it will move with different velocity. So am I on the right track or what.
