Derive the de Broglie wavelength for a charged particle of charge q and accelerated through a potential difference of V volts.

The Required de Broglie Wavelength:

A photon of light of frequency  has the momentum,


But, . Therefore, the momentum of the photon can be expressed in terms of wavelength λ as,


The wavelength of a photon is, therefore, specified by its momentum according to the relation,
