De Broglie’s Car Chase

1 de Broglie's Car Chase

According to de Broglie, every particle has an associated wavelength of λ=h/p. The larger the momentum, the shorter the wavelength.

In this comic, the car is desperately trying to increasing its speed and thus momentum, so as to shorten its wavelength, and hopefully avoid being diffracted when it drives through the slit. Haha.
