Uncertainty

Postby jane_ni_2d » Mon Oct 29, 2018 8:12 pm

For everyday objects, is it true that the uncertainty of any object is nonsignificant compared to how big the object is usually?

Yes, I believe when an object is large its uncertainty is so small in comparison that it's basically irrelevant to calculations done

Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle was created for very small masses, such as atoms and electrons. For example, in the example he gave us with sensors, the photons thrown changes the direction of an electron, but a photon cannot move you, or a baseball, or a fly.

I believe that the rule applies to objects that are smaller than 10^-18. I am not confident on this though, so if anyone else knows, that would be helpful!
