De Borglie wavelength = h / (M x V) where M x V is the momentum of the particle and h is Plank’s constant.
The wave length of any particle from an electron to the earth can be calculated if the momentum is known and the particle momentum of any wave can be determined if the wavelength is known.

Because I was considering the mass of a particle to be constant the momentum (velocity x mass) would only change with velocity and therefore the particle wave length would only change with velocity.
