    QUESTION 16a:
    Consider a 2470-lb automobile clocked by law-enforcement radar at a speed of 85.5 pmh (miles/hour). If the position of the car is known to be within 5.0 feet at the time of the measurement, what is the uncertainty in the velocity of the car?

    QUESTION 16b:
    If the speed limit is 75 mph, could the driver of the car reasonably evade a speeding ticket by invoking the Heisenberg uncertainty principle?
