# Matter wavelength and indeterminate of location and energy

• hubert_g
In summary, to find the matter wavelength and indeterminate of location and energy for a hydrogen particle in a gas with known p, V, T, you will need to use the equations \lambda = \frac{h}{m\sqrt{\frac{3RT}{\mu}}} and \varrho = \frac{p_{g}\mu}{RT}.

I have to find matter wavelength and indeterminate of location and energy for hydrogen particle which is in gas with konwn p, V, T

I'm sorry for my english skills:P

pressure will be $$p_{g}$$

$$\lambda = \frac{h}{p}$$

$$p = mv$$

$$v = \sqrt{\frac{3p_{g}}{\varrho}}$$

$$\varrho = \frac{n\mu}{V}$$

$$p_{g}V = nRT$$

$$\varrho = \frac{p_{g}\mu}{RT}$$

$$v = \sqrt{\frac{3RT}{\mu}}$$

$$\lambda = \frac{h}{m\sqrt{\frac{3RT}{\mu}}}$$

m - mass of hydrogen particle, $$\mu$$ mass of gas particle

Am I doing it correctly so far?

Yes, you are doing it correctly so far. To complete the calculation, you need to specify the values of h (Planck's constant), m (mass of hydrogen particle), \mu (mass of gas particle), p_{g} (gas pressure), V (volume), T (temperature), and n (number of particles). Once you have those values, you can plug them into the equation to calculate the matter wavelength and indeterminate of location and energy for the hydrogen particle.

Yes, your approach is correct so far. To find the matter wavelength and indeterminate of location and energy for a hydrogen particle in a gas with known pressure, volume, and temperature, you will need to use several equations and concepts from quantum mechanics and thermodynamics. Here is a step-by-step explanation of how to calculate these values:

1. Use the ideal gas law to find the number of moles of hydrogen gas present in the given volume and at the given temperature:

n = \frac{p_{g}V}{RT}

2. Use the molar mass of hydrogen (2.016 g/mol) to find the mass of one hydrogen particle:

m = \frac{2.016 g}{6.022 \times 10^{23} mol} = 3.35 \times 10^{-24} g

3. Use the known values of pressure, volume, and temperature to calculate the average velocity of the hydrogen particles in the gas:

v = \sqrt{\frac{3p_{g}}{\varrho}} = \sqrt{\frac{3p_{g}RT}{p_{g}\mu}} = \sqrt{\frac{3RT}{\mu}}

4. Use the mass and velocity of the hydrogen particle to calculate its momentum:

p = mv = 3.35 \times 10^{-24} g \times \sqrt{\frac{3RT}{\mu}} = 3.35 \times 10^{-24} \sqrt{\frac{3RT}{\mu}} g \cdot cm/s

5. Use the de Broglie wavelength equation to find the matter wavelength of the hydrogen particle:

\lambda = \frac{h}{p} = \frac{6.626 \times 10^{-34} J \cdot s}{3.35 \times 10^{-24} \sqrt{\frac{3RT}{\mu}} g \cdot cm/s} = 1.23 \times 10^{-6} \sqrt{\frac{1}{\mu}} cm

6. Use the uncertainty principle to calculate the indeterminate of location and energy for the hydrogen particle:

\Delta x \Delta E \geq \frac{h}{4\pi}

Since the uncertainty in position (\Delta x) is related to the matter wavelength (\lambda) as \Delta x = \frac{\lambda}{2\pi}, we can rewrite the uncertainty principle as:

\frac{\lambda}{

## 1. What is matter wavelength?

Matter wavelength refers to the distance between two consecutive peaks or troughs in a wave of matter. It is a property of particles, such as electrons, and can be calculated using the de Broglie wavelength equation, which relates the wavelength of a particle to its mass and velocity.

## 2. How does matter wavelength relate to the uncertainty of location?

The uncertainty of location, also known as the Heisenberg uncertainty principle, states that the more precisely we know the momentum of a particle, the less precisely we can know its position. This means that particles with longer wavelengths have more uncertainty in their location, while those with shorter wavelengths have less uncertainty.

## 3. What is the indeterminacy of energy in relation to matter wavelength?

The indeterminacy of energy, also known as the energy-time uncertainty principle, states that the more precisely we know the energy of a particle, the less precisely we can know the time at which it has that energy. This is related to matter wavelength because particles with longer wavelengths have a wider range of possible energies, while those with shorter wavelengths have a more specific energy range.

## 4. How does matter wavelength affect the behavior of particles?

The wavelength of matter has a significant impact on the behavior of particles, particularly at the quantum level. For example, when particles are confined to a small space, their wavelength becomes larger and they exhibit more wave-like behavior. This can lead to phenomena such as diffraction and interference, which cannot be explained by classical physics.

## 5. Can we accurately measure both the matter wavelength and the location and energy of a particle?

No, according to the Heisenberg uncertainty principle, it is impossible to simultaneously measure the matter wavelength and the location and energy of a particle with complete accuracy. This is because the act of measurement itself affects the properties of the particle, making it impossible to know both values with absolute certainty.
