Let's consider the uncertainty principle:
According to the uncertainty principle, it is difficult to determine the position and the momentum of a particle in the same place at the same time.
If we measure a subatomic particle's position very precisely, then (a) its momentum will be highly uncertain. (b) its spin will be highly uncertain. (c) we would be violating the uncertainty principle.
