Abstract

Waves are an important concept in physics. We can see water waves and readily demonstrate sound waves with elementary laboratory experiments. In 1801 Thomas Young showed that light can be considered wavelike by experimental analogies to the behavior of water waves. It will be shown in a later chapter that experiments with fundamental particles, such as electrons, demonstrate that they also have wave characteristics.
