Can someone clarify or give examples of what the particle properties of an electron are and what its wavelike properties are? I feel like there are certain experiments that show each but I'm confused on what these properties are.
Because electrons are quantized (have fixed locations) and since light can interfere and diffract it can be said that light has wave like properties. Photoelectric effect (shows that when light is shone onto a metal surface, electrons could be ejected) shows the particle side of the duality for light.
