Wave and Particle Properties of Electrons and Photons

Postby RichardValdez1L » Wed Apr 18, 2018 10:49 am

Are we just supposed to understand that electrons and photons act sometimes as waves and sometimes as particles because when using two beams the particles do not collide and the interference patterns for waves? Any clarification would be much appreciated ! :)

An electron is a particle. Light, however, has properties of both waves and particles, which is what the experiments we reviewed in class proved.
