## Main Question or Discussion Point

Electrons are said to exhibit wave-particle duality because depending on the method of observation it acts as either a particle or wave.

But according to De Broglie waves: A particle of mass,m, moving with velocity,v, acts like a wave of wavelength,[itex]\lambda[/itex]. Where [itex]\lambda = \frac{h}{mv}[/itex].

But if this is true, then why doesn't everything exhibit wave-particle duality?
