Homework Help: What quantity shows the wave particle duality of light?

  1. May 30, 2013 #1
    What quantity measured in the Compton effect experiment shows the wave- particle duality of light?

    the momentum shows the wave particle duality of light.
    is this true?
    The Compton Effect is An increase in wavelength of X-rays or gamma rays that occurs when they are scattered.

    You can check - how is momentum delivered in a wave compared with a particle ... compare with how it is delivered in the Compton Effect.
