(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

An electron is placed in a box about the size of an atom that is about 1*10^-10m. What is the velocity of the electron?

2. Relevant equations

Heisenberg's equation

xp=h/2pi

xmv=h/2pi

v=h/2pi*x*m

where x=1*10^-10m

m=9.1*10^-31kg

h=planck's cosntant

3. The attempt at a solution

Answer is 7.29*10^6
