Uncertainty Principal

Postby duenezjuleny1D » Wed Jul 31, 2019 2:01 am

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

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