the more the momentum of the electron is altered. Thus
any attempt to determine the location accurately will change the velocity of
the electron. Conversely, techniques for accurately measuring the velocity of
the electron will leave us in

take a beam of electrons and pass it through a pair of slits (a classical wave
experiment), you get diffraction and interference - properties characteristic
of a wave rather than a particle. If you reduce the intensity of the

The final outcome may be determinate (an electron in a particular location),
but the probability distribution of the possible outcomes has the mathematical
form of a wave.
