Heisenburg equation units

Postby CaminaB_1D » Sun Nov 04, 2018 9:22 pm

When using the Heisenberg uncertainty, what are the correct units to use for the components of the equations? (mass, velocity, distance, etc.)

Uncertainty of momentum is is kg*m/s, and uncertainty of position is m. Uncertainty of velocity is m/s.

The correct units are just the units you would use in any other equation with the same variables, except you use kg instead of g for mass, because momentum is kgm/s. So velocity is still m/s, and position is still m.
