Football Pass Wavelength

APPH12-YE$Q1R

At Auburn University, a football pass by Cam Newton was clocked at $56\text{ mph}$ ($90.1 \text{ km/h}$). A football has a mass of about $0.40\text{ kg}$.

Which of the following statements about the de Broglie wavelength is most consistent with the data if a football is thrown at this speed?

A

$\lambda =6.62\times { 10 }^{ -35 }\text{ m}$

B

$\lambda =4.14\times { 10 }^{ -32 }\text{ m}$

C

$\lambda =6.63\times { 10 }^{ -33 }\text{ m}$

D

$\lambda =1.06\times { 10 }^{ -35 }\text{ m}$
