The wave property of electrons

Postby EvaLi_3J » Wed Oct 16, 2019 9:32 pm

Could anyone explain the wave property of electrons again?
Why does electrons have wave-like property? I know that through the diffraction experiment, we have proven that electrons have wavelike properties, but why could this experiment show this?

Thank you!

If electrons only acted as particles, there would be no diffraction pattern. The electrons would have been detected in one spot as opposed to more than one.

In addition if electrons only acted like waves then increasing the intensity of light would yield more electron ejection, but that was not the case.
