Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle
Posted by Remo Giuffre on
The current federal election cliff hanger in Australia is possibly best celebrated by featuring our much loved and long standing Heisenberg design.
German born theoretical physicist Werner Heisenberg is perhaps best known for his 1927 Uncertainty Principle.
Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle states that determining the position and momentum of a particle necessarily contains errors the product of which cannot be less than the quantum constant h. These errors are negligible in general and on a human scale but become critical when studying very small things like atoms.
In other words ... the mere act of observing a thing, hits that thing with light particles (photons) and moves it; so by the time you actually see the thing, it has moved to somewhere else. (Damn!)
Please bear this in mind.
