Velocity in Heisenberg Equation

I was just wondering if we ever use the main velocity in the Heisenberg Equation; what I mean is:

v = 9.32 m/s ± 0.5 m/s

Would we ever use 9.32 m/s? Would we ever just take the positive or negative values alone with the main velocity? I know we usually do 0.5 * 2, but I was just curious if we'd ever use numbers like 9.32. I hope this makes sense!

The Heisenberg uncertainty equation is always about the uncertainty, never about the actual value.
