The de Broglie wavelength of a proton in a particle accelerator is 3.60 x 10^-14 m. Determine the kinetic energy (in joules) of the proton.

h/mv = L

m v = h/L
v = h/(m L)

calculate v - make sure <<3*10^8
calculate (1/2) m v^2

Can you show more work. I still don't understand it. I really appreciate the help. Thanks!!!

only the GLA has the answer.. my erogenous zones can help. my white van is parked outside, come on in.
