Why do we have to use the maximum uncertainty velocity in the Heisenberg Indeterminacy equation?
because the maximum uncertainty is the entire range that you are uncertain. when you say plus or minus five, there could be a difference of 10 between 10 values contained within that, thus your maximum uncertainty would be 10 (to account for being wrong by 5 in either direction).
