Am electromagnetic wave of wavelength lambda is incident on a photosensitive surface of negligible work function. If the photoelectrons emitted from this surface have de-broglie wavelength lambda 1, prove that lambda= (2mc/h)*lambda1^2

Dear Student,
Please find below the solution to the asked query:
 Debroglie wavelength:λB=h2mEλB2=h22mEwhereE=Energy=hcλSo,λB2=h22mhcλλ=2mchλB2
Hope this information will clear your doubts about Debroglie wavelength.
If you have any more doubts just ask here on the forum and our experts will try to help you out as soon as possible.
