### Heisenberg Indeterminacy Equation

So, the equation is (delta p)(delta x)>/Planck's constant divided by 4pi. 4 pi seems like a very arbitrary number to divide Planck's constant by, so why is Planck's constant divided by 4pi?

### Re: Heisenberg Indeterminacy Equation

Someone elaborate or correct me if I am wrong, but I believe the 4pi has to do with the ways one can express frequency. This equation specifically involves the number of cycles per second (as in Hz) but can also be considered as the number of radians covered per second so the 4pi must be involved in this conversion of frequency?
