Determining the Matter Wave Equation

To determine the wavelength of the wavy electron, de Broglie made use of the relations between the energy , the velocity of light , the momentum and the frequency of a photon or particle established by Planck and Einstein at the time.

To start with, de Broglie first employed Einsteins relativistic energy equation.

Classical Momentum

In classical mechanics, the momentum of a particle is equal to the product of its mass and velocity , or = . If the speed is so high as close to the speed of light (relativistic speed), its momentum will be governed by Einsteins relativistic equation.

Einsteins Energy Equation

Einsteins equation for the energy of a particle at high speed is written as:

2 = 22 + (2)2

Taking the square roots on both sides, we have:

= 22 + (2)2

At the same time, Einstein's theory of relativity pointed out that for a particle like a photon of zero rest mass = 0.So we can neglect the (2)2 term and the relativistic energy becomes:

= 22 + (2)2

= 22 =

Plancks Equation

On the other hand, according to Planck, the energy of a photon is related to its frequency and Plancks constant by the famous Plancks equation:

=

where is Planck's constant; is the frequency of the radiation or photon.

Speed & Wavelength

In radiation (light), the frequency of a photon is related to its velocity and wave length by:

Linking up Plancks formulae with Einsteins energy equation, de Broglie had:

De Broglie Hypothesis

At this point, de Broglie made an ingenious intuitive guess that if the electron is also a wave particle, its formulae should also be like that of a photon wave. That is, the same formula works also for the electron:

de Broglie equation

This relation between the wavelength and the momentum of the electron later became known as the famous de Broglie equation. is called the de Broglie wavelength of the electron:

=

So the particle bursts open and becomes a wave-particle. It is an assumption that if an electron is free, it would behave like a photon.
