The key to solving the wave-particle duality is the statement that the wave nature is revealed in fast motion, and in relative stillness we are dealing with particle nature.
No.Because particles of light travel at ... the speed of light.
Light is never still.
Quote from: Bored chemist on 25/10/2023 12:38:24Light is never still.During the interaction, the movement of the electromagnetic light wave is stopped, so we have stillness. As we know, light interacts and therefore sometimes remains in stillness.
If I agreed to this, and I don't have to
The way to solve the "puzzle of duality" is to ignore it.
Never confuse a model with reality.
The explanation of wave-particle duality presented in the first post may perhaps be considered not entirely satisfactory
This can probably be seen as a step towards the final solution.
And the issue of wave-particle duality itself is probably the largest and most difficult issue in physics.
Particles in rapid motion turn into waves, and in relative stillness they turn into particles. This is how the phenomenon of wave-particle duality can be explained.
Stuff happens, with absolute consistency
A quantum object is neither a particle nor a wave.
So what is it ?
I don't mean to be rude, but you don't seem to get the wave-particle duality problem.
