Solution

Given Data :-energy of neutron =0.025eV.
To find :-wavelength of a beam.

Calculation :-` λ=h/(√2meV)`

`=(6.626×10^(-34))/(√2×1.676×10^(-27) ×0.025×10^(-19) ×1.6)`

=1.8095A°.

Hence wavelength is equal to=1.8095A°.

2. Given Data :- λ=2A°,mn =1.676×10-27  kg,h= 6.625× 10-34 J-sec.  

To find :- momentum and energy.

Calculations :- `λ =h/p` ,………………….(for momentum)

`2×10^(-10) = ( 6.625×10^(-34))/p`

P=3.3125×10-24  kg-m/sec.

`λ=h/(√2mE)`

`2×10^(-10)  = (6.625×10^(-34))/(√2×1.676×10^(-27) ×)`

E = 5.721 × 10 -11 joules. 
Hence momentum=3.3125×10-24 kg m/sec. and energy is=5.721×10-11 joules.
