## kinetic energy and wavelength

In this entry, we will look at the link between the **kinetic energy** of an object and its **wavelength** by considering both the **de Broglie equation** and our general equation for kinetic energy.

where **λ** is the **wavelength** in metres, **h** is the **Planck constant**, and **mv** is the **momentum** of the particle in kgms^-1.
