Using Heisenberg's uncertainty principle, calculate the uncertainty in the position of the following.
a 1.32-mg mosquito moving at a speed of 1.61 m/s if the speed is known to within ± 0.01 m/s

I used the principle and got 2.48e-29 its wrong..and since its a fly i thought it would have area--didnt work and volume didn't either
