delta x is the uncertainty in position as we do not know exactly where an electron is at a given time. Delta p is the uncertainty in momentum which is derived by mass x velocity because we are not sure about the velocity.
These are important because the more you know about the position (delta x) of an electron, the less you know about its momentum (delta p), and vice-versa. Thus, it's impossible to know both an electron's position and momentum.
