Homework Statement



can we measure time and accelaration at the same time?
what exactly acceleration operator is?


Homework Equations



heisenberg's uncertainity principle

The Attempt at a Solution



I guess acc. operator is dp/dt i.e. [tex] \frac{\partial^2 }{\partial t \partial x}[/tex](ignoring constants)
and [tex] \delta a \delta t[/tex] is <p>
which say we may not measure

To the first question one cannot answer in the context of quantum mechanics. The accelerator operator is

[tex] \hat{a}(t)=\frac{1}{m}\frac{d\hat{p}(t)}{dt} [/tex]

in the Heisenberg picture.
