An electron and a proton each have a thermal kinetic energy of 3kBT/2. Calculate the de Broglie wavelength of each particle at a temperature of 2170 K. (kB is Boltzmann's constant, 1.38×1023 J/K. The mass of the electron is 9.11×1031 kg and the mass of the proton is 1.67×1027 kg.)

good luck, i was thinking of taking quantum physics
