I don't know if this is accurate, but I got from some book that these "pairs" are not actually stuck together, but move in opposite directions and are, like, mirror images of each other. Then the book also says that if an electron in the pair hits something, theother one in the pair hits something else, such that total momentum and energy is conserved. This kinda confuses me, since for one, I have no idea how the electrons can be "linked" if they are apart i.e. one feels the effect of the other electron (this is somewhat like entanglement if I am not wrong. I do not know if it has any relation to this), and how momentum can be conserved at all if anything hits anything else - SOME energy has to be lost, right?
