Is there any a priori connection beetween the orders of magnitude of e.g. momentum, and its uncertainty? Why do we always assume that the momentum is the same order of magnitude as its uncertainy? I'm refering to all those "back of the envelope" calculations.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks
