2. Can wave-functions be used to show/validate the law of conversation of momentum/energy?

3. In a single particle double slit/path experiments, if one path is blocked what happens to the wave-function ? and the energy?

4. Per the de-broglie bohm (DBB) interpretation:

In de Broglie–Bohm theory, the wavefunction travels through both slits, but each particle has a well-defined trajectory and passes through exactly one of the slits.

If the wavefunction (per DBB is hypothesized) is to be traveling through both the slits, how is (the energy of) the photon supposed to be travelling?In single particle interference

(for example single particle double slit,

or

single particle through a Mach-Zehnder)

the particle interferes with "itself".

The path of the photon is different (when there is interference) than the path when there is no interference. Thus energy must be involved (at least per classical mechanics) during interference. ...to change the path of a photon
