## What is Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle?

Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle states that ' It is impossible to determine simultaneously, the exact position as well as momentum of an electron'. It is mathematically possible to express the uncertainty that, Heisenberg concluded, always exists if one attempts to measure the momentum and position of particles. First, we must define the variable “x” as the position of the particle, and define “p” as the momentum of the particle.

## Is Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle noticeable in All Matter Waves?

Heisenberg’s principle is applicable to all matter waves. The measurement error of any two conjugate properties, whose dimensions happen to be joule sec, like position-momentum, time-energy will be guided by the Heisenberg’s value.
But, it will be noticeable and of significance only for small particles like an electron with very low mass. A bigger particle with heavy mass will show the error to be very small and negligible.
