### Uncertainty Principal

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

### Re: Uncertainty Principal

Wavelength = h/momentum, here we see that wavelength is inversely proportional to momentum. So any change in momentum would affect the wavelength.
