Answer to Question #18356 in Organic Chemistry for Emily
For what sizes of particles and velocities must one consider quantum effects?
The De Broglie postulate says that the wavelength of a particle is h/mv, where "h" is Plank's constant, "m" is the mass, and "v" is the velocity. Plank's constant is extremely small, so in order for the wavelength to not get wiped out, the product of m and v must be correspondingly small. Thus, quantum effects are relevant for particles that are either very small, or moving very slowly.
Thanks so much, it runs perfectly you saved me a lot of stress. You gave good quality service and I won't hesitate to recommend you to my other friends who don't have the time to get projects like these done.
