The general Uncertainty Principle is written in Griffiths' Intro to Quantum Mechanics 2nd Ed. Section 3.4, Page 109, Eq. (3.139) without dependence on the wave function itself. While it is written in R. Shankar's Principles of Quantum Mechanics 2nd Ed., Section 9.2, Page 239, Eq. (9.2.12) with a dependence on the wave function.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I can't understand the difference between the two equations. Is the one written in Shankar more general? Or they are the same equation but in a different formulation?
