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.
