Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle•If you try to specify/measure the exact position of a particle you cannot simultaneously know its momentum exactly.•If you try to specify/measure the exact momentum of a particle, you cannot simultaneously know its position exactly. px2hIn the microscopic world, Notice that this is very different from the macroscopic world (like throwing a football around). In the latter case, you CAN specify both the position and the momentum very well. We call the position as a function of time the TRAJECTORY Introduction to Quantum Mechanics (Prelude to Nuclear Shell Model)
