The equation for the de Broglie wavelength is given by,
λ = h m v
Here, h is the Planck's constant, m is the mass of the object and v is the speed of the object.
Substituting the values in the equation.
λ = 6.626 × 10 34 J s ( 0.4 k g ) ( 23 m / s ) = 7.20 × 10 35 m

De Broglie wavelength of an electron
If an electron which already possesses some kinetic energy of X e V is further accelerated through a potential difference of X V, then is it correct to state that the electron now has a total kinetic energy of ( X + X ) e V? Using this information, am I allowed to substitute this value in the de Broglie equation to find the wavelength of the electron?

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.

Factor 2 in Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle: Which formula is correct?
Some websites and textbooks refer to
Δ x Δ p 2
as the correct formula for the uncertainty principle whereas other sources use the formula
Δ x Δ p .
Question: Which one is correct and why?
The latter is used in the textbook "Physics II for Dummies" (German edition) for several examples and the author also derives that formula so I assume that this is not a typing error.
This is the mentioned derivation:
sin θ = λ Δ y
assuming θ is small:
tan θ = λ Δ y
de Broglie equation:
λ = h p x
tan θ h p x Δ y
but also:
tan θ = Δ p y p x
equalize tan θ:
h p x Δ y Δ p y p x
h Δ y Δ p y Δ p y Δ y h
Δ p y Δ y h 2 π
Δ p Δ x h 2 π
