1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data An electron microscope employs a beam of electrons to obtain an image of an object. What energy must be imparted to each electron of the beam to obtain a wavelength of 10.0pm? 2. Relevant equations 1. E = hv=hc/lambda 2. lambda = h/(mv) 3. KE = .5mv^2 3. The attempt at a solution In this problem I thought you could use the first equation to find the energy with the specific wavelength of 10pm. However, the workbook goes through equations 2 and 3 to first find the velocity and then find the kinetic energy. The answers come out very different, so I must be thinking wrong. Can anyone help me understand this? Since I am solving for energy, why do I need to go through equations 2 and 3?
