(a) Find the minimum uncertainty in the momentum of the object.

(b) Find the minimum uncertainty in the object's velocity, assuming that the object is a golf ball (mass = 0.045 kg).

(c) Find the minimum uncertainty in the object's velocity, assuming that the object is an electron.

ΔxΔp=Һ/2

Δp = Һ/2 Δx = 6.6310^-34/21.1 = 310^-34 kgm/s,

Δp = mΔv

Δv = Δp/m = 310^-34/0.045 = 6.710^-33 m/s,

Δv = Δp/m = 310^-34/9.110^-31 = 3.310^-4 m/s.
