de Broglie equation
the postulate of wave mechanics that a particle of mass m moving at a velocity v will have the properties of a wave of wavelength h/mv (de Broglie wavelength), where h is Planck's constant.
Why Are We Calling Everything A “Wave”?Why have so many waves found their way into our cultural lexicon in recent years? In this article, the first in the column Mincing Metaphors, we unpack this oceanic metaphor to better understand what it means and why it’s proving so useful right now.
Origin of de Broglie equation
named after L.V. de Broglie
