Question

Calculate the uncertainty in the position of (a) an electron moving at a speed of (3.00 ∓ 0.01) x 105 m/s, (b) a neutron moving at this same speed. (The masses of an electron and a neutron are given in the table of fundamental constants in the inside cover of the text.) (c)What are the implications of these calculations to our model of the atom?
