Post-Module Q#17

Postby Jessica Dharmawan 1G » Sun Nov 04, 2018 6:09 pm

The question states: Calculate the uncertainty (indeterminacy) in position of an electron if its uncertainty in speed is one hundredth the speed of light.

Does this mean the uncertainty is 3x10^6? if so, does delta v = 2(3x10^6)?

No, you do not multiply by 2. Uncertainty is what becomes delta v.
