Relating the deBroglie and Compton Wavelengths to the Velocity of Light?
- Gordon R. Kepner
No report in the literature has directly described this relation. New constants for particles are presented. One relates to the Compton wavelength, called here the “mass-wave” constant for all particles. The other relates to the deBroglie wavelength, called here the “velocity-wave” constant for a particle. An equation is derived based on these two constants encapsulating a fundamental relation between the matter-states, particle and wave, to the velocity of light. New approaches to the Uncertainty relations are shown. The basic Schrodinger equation is derived from the perspective of a non-dimensional second-order differential equation free of any assumed empirical constants. The resulting time-dependent wave equation for a free particle was then expressed in terms of the particle velocity and deBroglie wavelength.
