Am I understanding superposition correctly? Is it equivalent to "all-potential"? In the double-slit experiment, when a single particle is "fired", it will pass through the slits as a wave but hit the receiving end (screen) as a particle. Each particle will clump on the screen, but after many single particles are "fired" it will still form an interference pattern. (I think I got that right.) And the seemingly bizarre thing is that the particle acts as wave by going through both slits but is still a particle, unless we observe it and it remains a particle and goes through only one slit. So, does superposition mean that as the particle approaches the slits, it could potentially go through one slit, the other slit, or both slits, and so it does all three but remains a particle? Going back to the subject of my topic, is superposition a way of describing every potential position and/or state of a particle? Any assistance to or correction of my reasoning will be appreciated. I'm desperate for facts and professional interpretation!
