How does one find the needed uncertainty in velocity of the electron?

Do Δp*Δx ≥ h/4pi, and then plug in the Δp value into this equation: Δp=mΔv and solve for Δv

I was looking at the solutions manual and the value for h is not planks constant (6.626x10-34) but some other value. Can somebody explain why it is different?

For velocity in that problem you just need two equations. delta p times delta x is greater than or equal to h/4pi being the first equation and delta p=m times delta v being the second equation. Knowing these are what you need you can simply plug in the information you know and solve for the change in velocity.

The value given should be h/4pi, which is used in Heisenberg's indeterminacy equation.
