1

Define diffraction

Waves spreading out after they pass through a gap

2

Which diffract more - longer or shorter waves?

Longer waves

3

What is electron diffraction evidence of?

Electrons behaving like waves.

4

What other particle also exhibits this behaviour?

Neutrons

5

What is the wavelength of a particle given by?

Its de Broglie wavelength

6

Equation for de Broglie wavelength:

λ = h/p

Where h= plancks constant and p= momentum
