The De Broglie's wavelength is given by λ = h / mv(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

h = 6.626 x 10^(-34) Js

Now, if a macro-object of 6.626 kg is moving at a speed of 10^(-34) m/s then its De Broglie's wavelength comes out to be 1 meter (metre). What does it mean to have 1 meter wavelength for that object? If another object of same mass is moving with double the velocity then its wavelength comes out to be half meter. How an object with 1 meter wavelength is different from an object of 1/2 meter wavelength?
