Heisenbergy Uncertainty Equation

In the book (6th edition) it says the equation is momentum*postion=h/2pi. I thought it was over 4 pi. Is this a typo or is it really over 2pi,

The equation he gave in class is correct.

Just for clarity, hbar = h/2π

Re: Heisenbergy Uncertainty Equation

It should be either (h bar)/2 or h/4pi because h bar is equal to h/2pi
