3. In order to measure the momentum and position of a particle
simultaneously, and with an uncertainty smaller than that
allowed by the Heisenberg uncertainty principle,
A) one needs to make the two measurements as quickly as
possible.
B) one needs to make sure that the momentum of the
particle is very large.
C) one needs to use extremely accurate measuring
instruments.
D) one needs to repeat the measurement of each quantity
several times.
E) one cannot overcome the uncertainty principle through
any measurement technique because it is fundamental to
the wave nature of matter. This is the right answer, and if
you remember one thing about quantum physics, please
remember this.

–
decays have a

A) an undetected particle can carry off energy
B) energy is not conserved
C) the original neutron has a continuous spectrum
D) the daughter nucleus may have any energy
E) the emitted electron is free
