### Uncertainty of Momentum and Position

Can't you not know with zero uncertainty either the momentum or position since that would effectively make Heisenberg's Indeterminacy Equation 0 = h/4π, which is not true? (As in, shouldn't there be at least some uncertainty in both the momentum and position?)

### Re: Uncertainty of Momentum and Position  [ENDORSED]

If I understood your question correctly, there will always be uncertainty in the electron's position and momentum due to the difficulties of obtaining exact measurements of electron movement/location.
