dino nuggets 13 (c)

Postby Christineg1G » Sat Nov 02, 2019 4:08 pm

I understand that we are supposed to use the indeterminacy equation to solve 13 (c), from the midterm practice, but when I input the values into the calculator, I am not getting the correct answer, which is supposed to be 2.8x10^-32 m. I have converted the 2.8 g to kg and am solving for delta x. Can someone please explain?

the equation we would use is mass*indeterminacy of velocity*indeterminacy of position should be greater than or equal to h/4pi
Plug in 0.0028kg for mass and 0.68 for indeterminacy of velocity because the velocity could be 0.34m/s above or below the given value.
Isolate and solve for the position and you should get 2.8*10^-32m
