Uncertainty principle

Uncertainty principle is sometimes called indeterminacy principle. Warner Heisenberg, a German Physicist, from his experiment in year 1920s discover that the position and motion of particle wave cannot be pinned down. What its mean is that you can not find the position and the motions of a particle at the same time. If a particular particle wave can be pointed in the specific location it motion must be unknown. Also if the motion of a particular particle wave is known precisely it location must be unknown. Heisenberg summarised this uncertainty in what has become known as the uncertainty principle today. The more accurately position is known the less accurately the momentum can be determine and vice versa. Mathematically we can explain the uncertainty principle as the following where x is the position and p is the moment:

∆x.∆p >h/2π

On the above equation h stand for planck constant. The principal was first stated by Heisenberg arise from the particle wave nature of matter.

For example you can measure the locations of an election but not it’s momentum (energy) at the same time.
