Focus 1B.25 & 27 Homework

Postby Emma Joy Schaetz 1E » Sun Oct 20, 2019 1:22 pm

Can someone explain how the Heisenberg EQ works? I understand the plugging in of numbers but want to understand it on a more conceptual level and just can't quite get it.

The Heisenberg equation states that the product of the uncertainty in momentum times the uncertainty in position has to be greater than or equal to h/4π. This means there is a minimum number of uncertainty at all times.

Are we always calculating the MINIMUM uncertainty?

For 1B.27, the solutions manual is wrong. The answer should be 6.7x10^-34 m. This may clear things up for you
