Question by answerdancer: In quantum physics, what is the difference between a particle and a wave?
I’d like a definition of a particle and a definition of a wave and an explanation of their similarities and of their differences. I would mainly like to know how there can be a wave so small. What could cause such a wave and what medium could such a wave be in? I have a theory that quanta are neither particles nor waves and that they merely resemble particles or waves depending upon how we look at them, but I do not know what else they could be.
