Explanation of Solution
Introduction:
Light is composed of small packets of energy. Each packet is called a photon.
As per Planck-Einstein’s relation:
E = h v
Here, E is the energy of the photon, h is the Planck’s constant and v represents the frequency of the photon.
The energy of a photon can be measured using this relation.
To Describe: A method to measure momentum of a photon.
Explanation of Solution
Introduction:
Light is composed of small packets of energy. Each packet is called a photon.
The momentum of a photon can be measured using the following relation:
p = E c Here, E is the energy which can be measured using Planck-Einstein relation and c is the speed of light.
To Describe: The method to measure wavelength of photon.
Explanation of Solution
Introduction:
Light is composed of small packets of energy. Each packet is called a photon.
With the knowledge of momentum, the wavelength of the photon can be measured using the de Broglie’s equation:
λ = h p
Where, h is the Planck’s constant.

De Broglie's Matter wave equation dividing by zero
I was just thinking about De Broglie's matter wave equation: λ = h p where p is the momentum of the object. But what if the object is at rest? Won't we be dividing by zero? What if we take the limit as momentum tends to zero, won't we start to get noticeable waves? Can someone please explain to me where I went wrong?

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

To Calculate: Momentum of photon by using equation p = m v
asked 2022-05-07
Direction of momentum given by the de Broglie relation
p = m v
where m is the mass of an electron, and v is its velocity. In this case, since v is a vector, it's clear that the momentum will be also a vector.
However if the momentum is a vector quantity (and it is), what is the direction of the electron's momentum given by the de Broglie relation
p = h / λ p = k
if the Planck constant h is scalar and the wavelength λ is also scalar. Similarly the reduced Planck constant is scalar and the wavenumber k = 2 π / λ is also scalar.
