Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The uncertainty in the velocity of an oxygen molecule which has the mass of 5.3 × 1026 kg trapped within a sac should be calculated.

Concept Introduction:

The Heisenberg uncertainty principle says that it is impossible to know simultaneously both the momentum (p) and the position (x) of a particle with certainty.

Mathematically, ΔxΔp  h

For a particle having the mass m, ΔxmΔu   h

where Δx and Δu are uncertainty in measuring the position and velocity of the particle respectively; h is Planck’s constant (6.63 × 1034 Js).

To find: Calculate the uncertainty in the velocity of an oxygen molecule which has the mass of 5.3 × 1026 kg trapped within a sac
