D) Matter Waves - ALL moving particles have wave properties.
p = momentum of the particle
λ - called DeBroglie Wavelength
h - Planck's constant
The wavelength of ordinary objects are insignificant because their masses are too large.
Electrons are small enough
to have a significant
1927- Diffraction and interference patterns were observed for electrons.
A scientist passed electrons through tiny double slits and observed interference patterns
Where did they get slits small enough
When you pass a beam of electrons through the slits of a crystal you get an interference pattern
IS LIGHT A WAVE OR A PARTICLE?
