This question already has an answer here:
- Is the wave-particle duality a real duality? 10 answers
thanks in advance for the help.
Mainly, what characteristic of matter is wavelike? Does is physically move up and down like a wave, does it phase in and out of existence with a wavelike gradient, or something else entirely?
Also, how does this relate to superposition and interference of waves in terms of matter?
Finally, how does this describe the atomic orbital? I understand that an orbital is a region with a high probability of electron location but I don't understand how this is a wave.
I have been scouring the internet for this. Very frustrating. In multiple disciplines they drill into your head: "Matter demonstrates wavelike properties!" "Matter demonstrates wavelike properties!"
Yeah! Sweet! What a cool and important discovery! Explain it to me! ....nothing.
