Solution

  • Following are a few properties of matter waves :

    1. Matter waves are not electromagnetic in nature
    2. Matter-wave represents the probability of finding a particle in space.
    3. Matter waves are independent of the charge on the material particle.
    4. Electron microscope works on the basis of de-Broglie waves.
    5. Matter waves can propagate in a vacuum, hence they are not mechanical wave.
    6. The number of de-Broglie waves associated with nth orbital is n.
    7. The phase velocity of matter waves can be greater than the speed of light.
    8. The number of de-Broglie waves associated with the nth orbital electron is n.
