Light behaves in a way that is sometimes like a particle and sometimes like a wave. Use theresults of the double-slit experiment to explain?

    Light doesn't "sometimes behave". It has some of the properties of both particles and waves. In the photoelectric effect we have packets of energy and momentum to knock out electrons.  In the double slit experiment we have a wave passing through both slits creating interference.
