Hydrogen Atom:Electron Wave

  1. Sep 20, 2013 #1
    I wanted to know elecrons wave length(If you can show me this in picture I will be glad and not wave function Just wave length) how can we show this in equation.(not bohr model)(The last theory(Shrödinger))
    Thanks

    The electron's wavelength is related to its momentum by de Broglie's relation [itex] \lambda = h/p [/itex], where lambda is the wavelength, h is Planck's constant and p is the Momentum

    I know it but electron momentum is uncertanity.So we cant say one wavelenght
