Fastball Wavelength

APPH12-BJ5SHL

Nolan Ryan has pitched a fastball that has been officially clocked at a speed anywhere from $95-106\text{ mph}$ (which corresponds to $152.9-170.59\text{ km/h}$). The mass of the baseball is $0.145\text{ kg}$.

Which of the following statements about the de Broglie wavelength is most consistent with the data if a baseball is pitched at $106\text{ mph}$?

A

$\lambda =6.02\times { 10 }^{ -16 }\text{ m}$

B

$\lambda =9.65\times { 10 }^{ -35 }\text{ m}$

C

$\lambda =4.31\times { 10 }^{ -35 }\text{ m}$

D

$\lambda =2.68\times { 10 }^{ -35 }\text{ m}$
