Heisenberg's indeterminacy principle

Postby Iris Shim 1E » Sun Oct 22, 2017 8:24 pm

What does ħ mean in the equation of the Heisenberg's indeterminacy principle? What is the value (and units) of ħ and where does it come from?

I'm pretty sure the h is planck's constant!
h: 6.626x10^-34 Joules x seconds

For sure, H is Planck's Constant which is 6.626 x 10^-34 Jxs^-1. It relates the energy in one quantum (photon) of electromagnetic radiation to the frequency.
