Question

**Describe wave-particle duality, and how this relates to
Louis De Broglie’s postulate.**

Answer #1

Which of the following describes one of the main features of
wave-particle duality?
a. As mass increases, the particle nature of matter is less
easy to observe.
b.
As momentum increases, the wave nature of matter becomes more
evident
c.
As speed increases, the particle nature of matter becomes more
evident.
d.
As energy decreases, the wave nature of matter becomes less
easy to observe.

Calculate your De Broglie wavelength, calculate the De Broglie
wave length of a 5 MeV alpha particle. Compare your De Broglie
wavelength to the size of an automobile. Compare the alpha
particle's De Broglie wavelength to the size of an uranium atoms
diameter, which situation requires quantum mechanics?

Just as light waves have particle behavior, a moving particle
has a wave nature. The faster the particle is moving, the higher
its kinetic energy and the shorter its wavelength. The wavelength,
λ, of a particle of mass m, and moving at
velocity v, is given by the de Broglie relation
λ=hmv
where h=6.626×10−34 J⋅s is Planck's constant.
This formula applies to all objects, regardless of size, but the
de Broglie wavelength of macro objects is miniscule compared to
their...

1. Describe two important aspects of the de Broglie-Bohm (pilot
wave) theory that
differ from the Copenhagen interpretation of the double-slit
experiment.

Since light can be a wave and a particle, how does it
adapt to the different situations here? What I mean here is when is
it a wave and when is it particle here?

Louis de Broglie's bold hypothesis assumes that it is possible
to assign a wavelength λ to every particle possessing some momentum
p by the relationship λ = h p , where h is Planck's constant ( h =
6.626 × 10 − 34 J ⋅ s ). This applies not only to subatomic
particles like electrons, but every particle and object that has a
momentum. To help you develop some number sense for de Broglie
wavelengths of common, everyday objects,...

a.What does energy quantization mean? How is that
different from classical physics?
b.Explain what is meant by wave-particle duality.
c.Estimate the uncertainty in your position when
running across the quad.
d.Describe a particle-in-a-box.

Which statement A–D about the wave function for a single
electron is not correct? a. A French graduate student named Louis
de Broglie first had the idea that an electron should be described
as a wave. b. Since nl = c, an expression for the wavelength of an
electron can be found by combining Einstein’s equation that relates
mass and energy (E = mc2) with his equation that gives the energy
of a photon in terms of its frequency (E...
