Physics H133: Problem Set #4

Here are some hints, suggestions, and comments on the problem set.

Two-Minute Problems

Remember to give a good explanation, no longer than two sentences.

  1. Q4T.4: Standard interference problem! Once you know the de Broglie wavelength, the problem goes through as with any two-slit interference problem involving waves of that wavelength.
  2. Q4B.8: Is this ball relativistic or non-relativistic? Remember to make a comparison. Don't just say that the wavelength is small. Also, what determines the wavelength size (i.e., in an alternate universe, what could be different that would make it important to consider the wave nature of a pitched baseball?).
