- TL;DR Summary
- Does this scenario violate the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle?

Hello, 2 questions please about the Uncertainty Principle and the following scenario:

I shoot at each other, 2 electrons each with equal but opposite velocity such that they repel each other?

(To me, this indicates that you know the momentum of each electron and you know each position, all simultaneously.)

1. Does this scenario violate the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle?

2. Does Quantum Mechanics require adherence to the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle?

Sorry for the Physics 1A questions, but it's been 50 years since I took it and I'm confused. :-)

Thanks in advance.
