Homework Statement



Calculate the energy of a neutron wavelength 0.1nm


Homework Equations





The Attempt at a Solution



let L = lambda

So i just use E = hv/L

L = hv/E

But how do i write v in terms of E? isn't E the total energy rather than just kinetic...

Or can i use lambda = h/p, work out the KE, then add on the rest energy?
