Problem

Which statement related to particle and wave properties of matter is correct?

a. Particles exhibit diffraction while waves do not.

b. A wave travels straight through a slit.

c. Interference patterns are observed when a wave passes through a barrier with two slits.

d. Particles interfere constructively and destructively whereas waves do not.

Solution

We’re being asked to identify the statement that is correct about the particle and wave properties of matter.


Recall that matter can exhibit both particle and wave properties.
