wave
i think
Actually, it's both. In some experiments, you can interpret light as a beam of particles to explain the results (eg, when studying mirrors or lenses). In others, regarding difraction for example you cannot. Picture light as little balls going through a slot, under certain conditions this balls will appear in places that you wouldn't expect. Try using a laser and thin slot to see a difraction patern and you'll get the idea.

It's called duality. No one ever saw a light particle but some experiments prove it acts like a particle, other prove it acts like a wave (both very interesting experiments, great read).
Like Marianne said, it is both. If this question relates to a specific experiment then the answer depends on the perameters of that experiment. A difraction expirament will show that light is clearly a wave, while low-energy packet emmisions will show that it is clearly a particle.
it largely depends on what experiment you are using to determine it.
thnx to all of u
Its probably neither. We like to throw things in with previous groups but the fact is light is really different from anything else.
exactly u r rite...
wave...thats it
