Wavelike properties

Postby nelms6678 » Sat Dec 09, 2017 3:12 pm

How can you tell if something has measurable wavelike properties?

If the wavelength is 10^(-15) or larger, we can measure it, meaning we can discern wave-like properties.

Yes, so if the wavelength is smaller than 10^-15, then it does not have measurable wavelike properties.

This limitation is primarily due to the precision of modern measuring equipment.
