If I have this right, when we have exact certainty of a particle's momentum, the bounds of this particle's location cannot be determined. Now there are some who believe in a universe of finite volume and so this particle has to be within this volume. So there seems to be a contradiction. Does the Uncertainty Principle contradict the finite universe?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
