Heisenbergy Uncertainty Equation

Postby Mahir_Hasan2C » Sun Oct 21, 2018 1:10 pm

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

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