Compare the de Broglie wavelength of an alpha particle moving at

`3.40\times 10^(7)`

miles per hour

`(1.52\times 10^(7)(m)/(s))`

to that of a baseball moving at 90.0 miles per hour (

`40.2(m)/(s)`

) and a proton with a speed of

`1.30\times 10^(7)`

miles per hour (

`5.81\times 10^(6)(m)/(s)`

). \table[[Particle,Mass
