Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was wondering if there is a standard "margin of error" concerning the level of divergence from classical physics we see when looking at atoms and particles in a quantum context. That is, I know it is the case that we can't pinpoint the exact next location of a particle, but is it the case that there is a general "range" that our predictions can become relatively accurate?

This might be a very fundamental point but I'm a newcomer.

Thanks.
