a) The x-coordinate of an electron is measured with an uncertainty of 0.20 mm. What is the xcomponent
of the electron’s velocity, vx, if the minimum percentage uncertainty in a simultaneous
measurement of vx is 1.0%.
b) Repeat part (a) for a proton.

    Answer Details
    Δx = 0.200mm = 0.200*10-3m
    the mass of electron is: m=9.1 × 10-31kg
    Δpx = mΔvx = mvx*1.0% = mvx /100
    since
    Δx Δpx = Δxmvx /100
    the Planck's constant h = 6.626*10-34m2kg/s
