Distinguish, differentiate, compare and explain what is the differences between electromagnetic and matter waves. Comparison and Difference.
Differences between Electromagnetic and Matter Waves
|Associated with electrical and magnetic fields.
|Not associated with electrical and magnetic fields.
|Can be emitted or radiated in space.
|Neither radiated into space nor emitted by the particles. These are simply associated with the particles.
|Travel with the same velocity.
|Travel with different velocities.
|Velocity is equal to that of the velocity of light i.e. 3 x 10 8 ms-1.
|Velocity is different from that of light.
|The wavelength is given by lambda = c/v = h/mc.
|The wavelength is given by lambda = h/mw = h/p.
