instead of the imaginary multiple components view of the electron lets just take the ole time imaginary point particle view to get the wavelength LOL, is that a contradiction in terms or what :) ...
so lets say the electron is in the ground state in neighborhood of the S orbital of a hydrogen atom....
and the electron is zitterbwungin around in that orbital...
the pathway the electron takes we of course don't know...
but we manage to measure the momentum of the electron. so we now know the net velocity of the electron since we know the rest mass already.
but knowing the momentum we can calculate the wavelength from the deBroglie equation.
regards, tim
