Contextual Learning Series – Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle

Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle

In quantum mechanics, the uncertainty principle is any of a variety of mathematical inequalities asserting a fundamental limit to the precision with which certain pairs of physical properties of a particle known as complementary variables, such as position x and momentum p, can be known simultaneously.

Now if you have a tough time understanding the cumulative knowledge of the condensed meaning in this succinct verbiage deemed to be essential to the wisdom of  the secrets of the cosmos, then this post is for you. After years of putting mokkai in the virtual world and doing my bit to pollute the web, I now turn to do my bit towards cleaning the web by educating the masses with scientific theories in easy to understand contextual representations.

Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle – There are limits in measuring accuracy and info. availability in any govt. task beyond which both units cannot be measured simultaneously.

    LOL !!! On a serious note, pls read my post – Uttarakhand tragedy and the “Asafal yatra”!!! –
    Feedback most welcome !

      Glad it brought out a laugh Anand! But it’s a tragedy as you’ve written and sad part is that it could have been avoided or atleast better coordinated for rescue.

    It took me a while to realize this was a joke lol… The Uncertainty Principle basically states you can’t know both the position and the momentum of a particle simultaneously. It’e responsible for a lot of cool quantum phenomenon. I post about physics on my blog 🙂

      Thanks for dropping by! Yeah I took a shot the govt with a little help from Physics 🙂
      I’m exploring ways in which I can apply the principle behind scientific theories in our normal day to day life.
      I’d be sure to follow your blog!
