de broglie's formulation:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

λ=h/(mv)

the more the momentum of a particle, the less wave-like behaviour it shows. But what if we have electron which is stationary, i.e. zero speed, according to formula λ becomes ∞. What does this mean? Does the electron disappear?
