What is the smallest 1D box in which you can confine an electron if you want to know for certain that the electron's speed is no more than 10m/s?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am guessing it has to do with the wave function, but I have no idea where to start...

Any help would be great!!
