1 PHYS 342 Fall Semester 2011 Solutions: Homework No. 4 Due: October 14, 2011 1. In an experiment, the speed of an electron is measured to be 6.0x10 5 m/s. Since all measurements have an uncertainty associated with them, in this case say the electron speed is only measured to an accuracy of 1.0x10 4 m/s. This implies that the uncertainty in the speed of the electron is therefore 2x10 4 m/s. According to quantum mechanics, what is the size of the smallest region in space in which the electron could be found?
