Homework Help: chemistry

Posted by Liana on Tuesday, October 30, 2012 at 12:19am.

What is the de Broglie wavelength in nm of a buckyball, (molecular formula C60), moving at speed 250 m/s?

I don't understand how you find the mass from the molecular formula C60.

The answer is 2.2*10^-3nm. I tried multiplying the mass of carbon by 60, but it didn't come out with the right answer.
