Wave-particle duality

Matter behaves as a particle, but under certain conditions also as a wave.



The de Broglie equation gives the relationship between the wavelength λ and momentum of a particle.


    h Planck constant
    p Momentum
    m Inertial mass
    v Velocity
    γ Lorentz factor
    c Speed of light


Additional Information

The equation was developed in 1924 by the French physicist Louis de Broglie.
