Title: Matter Waves
Url: https://web.phys.ksu.edu/vqm/tutorials/matterwaves/
Creator: Zollman, Dean
Publisher: Physics Education Research Group at Kansas State University
Description: This resource discusses wave interference and quantum waves associated with particles. A shockwave simulation gives an illustration of the quantum double-slit experiment. Questions lead the students through the dependence of the wave interference on masses, slit separation, and momentum. A connection to classical objects is made.
