* Shouldn’t the constant above be ℏ/2 ? Let us first clear up some air of confusion.
The above relations are kind of vague even though look like canonically powerful ways to represent the formal concepts of the Heisenberg Uncertainty relationships. I have myself confused with these at times … with the added degree of confusion coming from h or h-cross?
But there is nothing to be ashamed of, if one makes such mistakes.
Does ℏ/2 come due to normalization of wave function or discrepancy in definition? eg do they come because variance (ΔE, Δx) and standard deviation (σx , σH ). More…
