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 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.
In the Bohr’s model of the hydrogen atom, the electron trapped in the atom is only allowed to occupy specific energy levels. All the other energy levels are forbidden. This reminds me of students who do not have the freedom to have any hairstyle they want when they are “trapped” in the school. Haha.
