Answer to Question #7671 in Atomic and Nuclear Physics for Matthew Mencer
quantum physics states that electrons can act as a wave or a particle. I thought they meant that the particle would be moving in a sine wave, but they told me that that was not the case. that the particles acted like waves in an ocean or something like that. I do not understand this at all, and I need a basic understanding of quantum physics by next fall. So, can someone please explain the particle or wave thing to me.
