### Indeterminacy in Position (delta x)

Hi, I am slightly confused about the example that Dr. Lavelle showed in class today: "For H-atom the electron is confined to its nuclear diameter, 1.7x10^-15m." He stated that this number would be the electron's uncertainty in position (delta x) in the Heisenberg and I am just slightly confused as to why that is the uncertainty. Thank you!
