Re: Uncertainty

Uncertainty in position is measured by diameter in meters. It is either provided or you must solve for it knowing delta p.

Re: Uncertainty

Delta x represents the uncertainty in position. You can use Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle (uncertainty of position)(uncertainty of momentum) is greater than or equal to (Planck's Constant /4 pi).
