Heisenberg’s Homework

24 heisenberg's homework

Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle states that there is a lower limit to the product of the uncertainties in energy and time. (ΔEΔt > h/4π)

In this comic, young Heisenberg is explaining that he can’t do his homework since he can’t “have the energy and time” at the same time. Haha.

*Please realize that this comic is based on very loose interpretation of the uncertainty principle.

Heisenberg’s Chicken

25 heisenberg's chicken

Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle states that there is a lower limit to the product of the uncertainties in position and momentum of a wave-particle. (ΔxΔp > h/4π). This comes about because every wave-particle has an associated wave function which describes the probabilistic existence of the wave-particle. Interestingly, any attempt to constrain a wave function in position inevitably results in the wave function being less constrained in momentum.

In this comic, an attempt to restrict the chicken to a smaller space (reduce Δx) inevitably results in faster motion of the chicken (increased Δp). Haha.
