Unformatted text preview: A. its energy B. its momentum C. the frequency of its wave function D. the wavelength of its wave function E. the square of the magnitude of its wave function _B _ 3. An electron passes through a single slit, and as a result, the component of its momentum parallel to the slit is uncertain by ∆ p y . ∆ p y is reduced if: A. the slit width is decreased B. the slit width is increased C. the energy of the electron is increased D. the energy of the electron is decreased E. the momentum of the electron is increased...
