Given data:
Mass ( m ) = 0.5 k g
Velocity ( v ) = 6.63 × 10 34 m / s
h = 6.63 × 10 34 J . s
Required:
Wavelength ( λ)
The de Broglie wavelength is given by
λ = h m v = 6.63 × 10 34 J . s ( 0.5 g k ) ( 6.63 × 10 34 m / s ) = 2 m
The wavelength of the particle is 2 m

What is E in below equation? Does it represent total energy or kinetic energy(De-broglie equation for uncharged particle like neutron.)
De-broglie equation for uncharged particle:
λ = h 2 m E
Where, λ = wavelength
h = planks constant
m = mass of uncharged particles

Is the relation c=νλ valid only for Electromagnetic waves?
What is the validity of the relation c = ν λ? More specifically, is this equation valid only for Electromagnetic waves?
I read this statement in a book, which says:
"de Broglie waves are not electromagnetic in nature, because they do not arise out of accelerated charged particle."
This seems correct, but arises a doubt in my mind.
Suppose I find out the wavelength of a matter wave (or de Broglie wave) using de Broglie's wave equation:
λ = h p
Now, can I use c = ν λ to find out the frequency of the wave?

Why is the de Broglie equation as well as the Schrodinger equation is correct for massive particle?
Starting from special relativity, here I see the de Broglie approximation is valid only if m 0 = 0
Derivation:
E 2 = P 2 C 2 + m 0 2 C 4 . Here we put Plank-Einstein relation E = h ν = h C λ . Finally,
λ = h P 2 + m 0 2 C 2 ( 1 )
If m 0 = 0 then λ = h p (de Broglie approximation).
Furthermore we know the Schrodinger equation was derived by assuming that the de Broglie approximation is true for all particles, even if m 0 0. But if we take special relativity very strictly then this approximation looks incorrect.
In addition, if we try to derive the Schrodinger equation from the exact relation found in '1', we find completely different equation. For checking it out, lets take a wave function-
Ψ = A e i ( 2 π λ x ω t ) = A e i ( P 2 + m 0 2 C 2 x E t ) (putting λ from '1', h 2 π = and E = ω).
Then, 2 Ψ x 2 = P 2 + m 0 2 C 2 2 Ψ = E 2 C 2 2 Ψ
E 2 Ψ = C 2 2 2 Ψ x 2 ( 2 )
Again, Ψ t = i E Ψ E Ψ = i Ψ t
Here we see operator E = i t E 2 = 2 2 t 2
E 2 Ψ = 2 2 Ψ t 2 ( 3 )
Combining (2) and (3) we find the differential equation:
2 Ψ x 2 = 1 C 2 2 Ψ t 2
It is the Maxwell's equation, not the well known Schrodiner equation!
Therefore for the Schrodinger equation to exist, the de Broglie approximation must hold for m 0 0. I see a clear contradiction here. Then why is the Schrodinger equation correct after all?
