Double Slit Experiment Explained

By Johny Jagannath

If you watch this video, you will notice that the speaker introduces a concept known as interference via a bowling ball and then uses the same logic for [light] and electrons. The reader should keep in mind that when one uses electrons, which are very very very small, the slit edges, must be treated realistically. That is, the slit edges will no longer be perfectly opaque but they will be highly porous [like a series of meshes at a molecular level] when compared to the size of an electron and therefore, it is not so surprising that we several interference patterns. This unrealistic treatment of a slit edge, as being totally opaque, in the Double Slit Experiment when compared to the size of a photon or an electron has misled modern physicists into making wild claims, about reality. 

The reader can find an extension of the mesh-analogy that explains why we see colors in a spectrum here and how this explanation seamlessly blends with the energy equation, e=hv via Goethe's Theory of Colour.
