What is the amplitude of the wave produced by an object of resting mass m0 when it is going a velocity v? I haven't come across any information on the amplitude of de Broglie waves, and thus I assume that the amplitude of the wave is proportional to the Lorentz factor, m0/sqrt(1+v^2/c^2). Is this correct?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks for your input
