Light vs Electron

Postby megan blatt 2B » Sat Oct 20, 2018 12:34 am

I know that light has wave particle duality ( the ability to behave both as a wave and as a particle) but does this apply to electrons too?

Electrons DO exhibit wave particle duality. It was proved through an experiment by Davisson and Germer. It's kind of hard to explain so I'll just give you a link to a video I watched to better understand it.
