Differences between Electromagnetic and Matter Waves
|S.No.||Electromagnetic Waves||Matter Waves|
|1||Associated with electrical and magnetic fields.||Not associated with electrical and magnetic fields.|
|2||Can be emitted or radiated in space.||Neither radiated into space nor emitted by the particles. These are simply associated with the particles.|
|3||Travel with the same velocity.||Travel with different velocities.|
|4||Velocity is equal to that of the velocity of light i.e. 3 x 10 8 ms-1.||Velocity is different from that of light.|
|5||The wavelength is given by lambda = c/v = h/mc.||The wavelength is given by lambda = h/mw = h/p.|
