Unformatted text preview: Particles at a macroscopic scale, on the other hand, create a pattern of just two bands, which is a result similar to having just one slit. When scientists tried this experiment with electrons, the resulting pattern of hits was the same as those of a wave. When scientists wanted to investigate what was going on by placing an electron detector near one of the slits, the electrons produced a pattern like particles at a macroscopic scale. This result is strange because electrons behave as a wave under certain conditions, and as particles under other conditions....
