Initial momentum is 200pm 

Explaination:

\({d\lambda\over\lambda}\times 100 =0.5 \)

\({d\lambda\over\lambda}\times 100 ={0.5\over100}={1\over200}\)  and \(\triangle p=p_m\) 

\(p={h\over\lambda},\) differentiating

 \({dp\over d\lambda}=-{h\over \lambda^2}={-h\over \lambda}\times{1\over\lambda}={-p\over \lambda}\) 

\({|dp|\over p}={d\lambda\over \lambda} \therefore {p_m\over p}={1\over 200}\) 

p=200 pm
