Explaining the Heisenberg Uncertainty [Science]
posted September 17 2014 14:58.39 by Giorgos Lazaridis




The Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle states that you can never simultaneously know the exact position and the exact speed of an object. There is actually a good reason why this happens, and that is because everything in the universe behaves like both a particle and a wave at the same time... Which is rather odd... But hey, we're talking about quantum physics here!

Chad Orzel explains WHY the fact that every object behaves like both a particle and a wave dictates that we cannot know the exact position and the exact speed of an object at the same time.
