Phase velocity electric current

  1. Jun 22, 2010 #1
    In quantum mechanics, particles also behave as waves with complex phases. By the de Broglie hypothesis, we see that

    Vp=w/k=E/p


    Does have relation Volt with momentum or wavnumber(2Pi/wavelenght) ?
    and current with phase velocity ?

    Voltage is Potential Energy so it is related to frequency. The corresponding wave-number is related to the magnetic vector potential 'A'.
