The concept that systems of measurement allow for both position and momentum of a particle to be known only to a certain extent of accuracy; insignificant on larger scales, but very important on scales the size of atoms and smaller.
Principle that states there is a fundamental limit to how precisely both the position and velocity of a particle can be measured at the same time. See also: particle, Advanced Topics
A quantum-mechanical principle with the consequence that the position and momentum of an object cannot be precisely determined. The Heisenberg principle helps determine the size of electron clouds, and hence the size of atoms.
it is impossible to know both velocity and position of a particle at given time.
The principle that it is not possible to know with unlimited accuracy both the position and momentum of a particle: the more accurately one measures position, the more uncertain becomes momentum (momentum is, essentially, a product of the mass and velocity of a particle). One explanation is that the act of location itself alters the position of the particle in an unpredictable way.
Heisenberg uncertainty principle is the principle that it is not possible to know with unlimited accuracy both the position and momentum of a particle. German physicist Werner Heisenberg (1901-1976) discovers this principle in 1927.
The act of observation affects the observation. Further, because of the nature of these observations, only sentient beings can perceive them. Therefore, this principle means that "reality" does not exist independent of the sentient observer. Because of this concept, it is impossible to completely accurately benchmark the performance of an application, because the benchmarking will throw off the test. See Also: Benchmarking
This principle states that it is not possible to know a particle's location and momentum precisely at any time.
can't measure the momentum and position at the same time. The particle will be disturbed when you try to measure it.
The statement that one cannot simultaneously measure both the position and velocity (actually, momentum) of a particle with arbitrary precision.
It is impossible to determine accurately both the momentum and position of an electron simultaneously.
a principle stating that there is a fundamental limitation to how precisely we can know both the position and the momentum of a particle at a given time.
