 a) true b) false

4 An understanding of the diffraction pattern associated with particles is based on

 a) Forces that the De Broglie pilot wave exert between pairs of particles. b) Forces that the De Broglie pilot wave exert on individual particles. c) Interference between the component of the wave from each slit. d) The fact that particles can make glancing collisions with the edge of a slit. e) All of these nearly equivalent models explain diffraction.
