Unformatted text preview: o Heisenberg Uncertainty principle which is applicable to sub-atomic particles In the example with the electron in the atom we see that the value is invalid because the value of v is so off the speed of light and when you compare the mass versus Delta x you see that error and precision is twice under that of m. Therefore we cannot understand were the electron is in the atom. We stop talking about orbits and start talking about orbitals were it is a volume of a certain distance, utilizing the uncertainty principle, we can estimate were the presence of the electron might be. It becomes insignificant and just available in a certain space with probabilities referring to where it most likely will be...
