1B. 25

Postby Ghadir Seder 1G » Tue Oct 15, 2019 10:05 pm

In the solutions manual for this problem, it states that h=(1.054 457x10^-34)and converts J. s to kg. m^2.s^-1
My question is where does this value come from in the problem? I thought that H was plank's constant which is 6.626x10^-34?
Can anyone explain to me where this value comes from?

Thank you :) !

1.054 457x10^-34 isn't the value for h, but it is actually the value of h bar. H bar is equal to h/(2pi), and is denoted as an h with a line through the top. Although it's used in the uncertainty principle in the book, it's not necessary to know it because it's just a shorthand.
