### Re: sapling question 27

In this the problem, they explicitly state that delta v = 0.01*10^6 m/s, so you would just input that number. I'm not completely sure why they give the other number, but it's not relevant to this question.

### Change in Velocity Uncertainty

Your bowling ball of mass 4.02kg rolls down a lane with a speed of 2.35 +/- 0.1m/s. What is the minimum indeterminacy of its position? Can you blame the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle when your ball misses the pins? I'm getting confused on when you multiply the velocity by 2 or when you just use t...

I think you would always convert nm to m unless it's specified otherwise.

### Sapling Homework #22

You can use an electron microscope in which the matter wave associated with the electron beam has a wavelength of 0.0339 nm. What is the kinetic energy of an electron in the beam, expressed in electron volts? I first approached this problem by trying to find the frequency from deriving the c=lambda*...

### Re: Text Book Problems

I'm not completely sure, but I don't think we'll need to know specific formulaic names. I would just know basic compound names like CO2 and others like that.

### Re: 1B.15

I think you would use the E=hv equation because it's referring to the radiation. The way I interpreted that was that it was asking more specifically about the photon, and I'm pretty sure if the question refers to the photon you would use E=hv rather than any other energy equations.
