Is it possible to specify the position and momentum of a particle?

It is not possible to know both at the same time. You can only know one or the other, not both of them simultaneously!

As you become more certain in momentum, the uncertainty of position increases; and vice versa. That's why it's Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle, because you can only be certain in one or the other, never both at the same time.
