A 232 lb fullback runs 42 yd at 19.8 +_ 0.1 mi/h. what is the uncertainty of his position?


Expert Answer

Step 1

Given information:

Mass = 232 lb

Velocity =19.8 ± 0.1 mi/h

Step 2

Heisenberg uncertainty principle states that it is impossible to determine the exact position and velocity of a particle simultaneously. The mathematical expression for Heisenberg uncertainty principle is given as follows:
