### Wave Particle Duality

Does the ability to combine $E=h\nu$ and $c=\lambda \nu$ prove the duality of light as both a wave and particle?

### Re: Wave Particle Duality  [ENDORSED]

I think it should because $c=\lambda \nu$ is based on the the description of light as a wave and $E=h\nu$ is based on the description of light as particles (since it describes the energy of a photon). The ability to combine the two into $E=\frac{hc}{\lambda }$ should reflect the wave-particle duality of light but please correct me if I'm wrong.
