Uncertainty Principal

Postby duenezjuleny1D » Sat Dec 08, 2018 7:46 pm

how is it that decreasing the uncertainty in momentum affects the uncertainty in wavelength? can someone explain how wavelength is affected?

This applies to the DeBroglie equation where wavelength = planck's constant/momentum. Because of this equation as the wavelength increases the momentum decreases, thus the two are inversely proportional.
