- Heinsenburg's Uncertainty Principle
Applying the uncertainty principle to a moving bullet.
A bullet of mass 25gm is moving with a velocity of 400m/s. The speed is measured accurately up to 0.02%. Calculate the certainty with which the position of the bullet can be located.
We have to apply the uncertainty principle that is
"The exact position and momentum of a particle cannot be determined simultaneously with a desired accuracy"
Let's take dp for ...
Interesting problem with an interesting solution, which explains each relevant steps.
