- My question: How do the values for the velocity, momentum and energy of an electron in a double-slit experiment are altered by the observation?

My question:

How do the values for the velocity, momentum and energy of an electron in a double-slit experiment are altered by the observation?

Probably,energy is altered. Given that energy is a function of momentum and velocity, either or both of these must have been changed. However, I am not sure how accurate this prediction is. Does the electron change its velocity and/or mass when it's observed? Or was I wrong assuming that the energy of the electron changes as it's observed? After all, was I wrong in applying the relativity to QM?

Thank you in advance
