Knock the uncertainty down!

  1. Aug 12, 2008 #1
    I was interested in Quantum Mechanics so I started reading some books about it.
    When I was reading about Uncertainty principle I found out we have uncertainty about the particle because of photons.
    was my conclusion right or the uncertainty arises from somewhere else?
    and If we make a mechanism that observe the particle without photon,will uncertainty principle knock down?

    The principle holds without photons. There are tens of threads about it here on PF.
