The effect of the

Answer :

The uncertainty principle is only significantly applicable for microscopic particles and not macroscopic particles this can be concluded from the measurement of uncertainty:


, as the uncertainty is in inverse proportion with the mass we can say that greater mass will bring smaller in insignificant uncertainty for macroscopic particles.


For example, if we take a particle or an object of mass 1 milligram i.e. 10-6 kg )


We calculate the,



= 10-28 m-2 s -1


The value we got is negligible and very insignificant for the uncertainty principle to be applicable to the particle.
