The Uncertainty Principle of Quantum Mechanics

The Uncertainty Principle is one of the fundamental laws at the base of Quantum Mechanics. It was postulated by Heisenberg and states precise inequalities that constrain certain pairs of physical properties, such as measuring the present position while determining future momentum.

It introduces also a precise relationship between space, momentum and the Planck constant ħ.

The following video introduces in a simple way the Uncertainty Principle. Enjoy yourself on Fair Science!
