Consider an electron in motion. Now, suppose that I'm measuring it's position with infinite accuracy. So, by the uncertainty principle, it's velocity is blurry. But what if I measure the position of the electron again, after a very short interval of time, with infinite accuracy? Then, I can compare the distance it has moved from its previous position, and as I know the time taken for the electron to move this distance, i can figure out its velocity. So, I can measure both the position and velocity of the electron simultaneously, thereby violating the uncertainty principle.

So, what is the mistake I've made in this theoretical experiment?
