Unformatted text preview: A (Angstrom units). The velocity of light is c = 3 x 10 8 m/s. 5. A quantum particle is confined to a rectangular box of dimension along the x-axis equal to 10 A . What is the minimum uncertainty in the x-component of momentum? 6. The uncertainty in the measurement of the energy level of an atomic particle is 10-6 second. What is the accuracy to which energy can be measured independent of how precise the measuring equipment can measure? Constants: h = 6.63 10-34 m 2 kg / s m e = 9.11 10-31 kg c = 3 10 8 m/s q = 1.60 10-19 coulombs...
