1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

In the lungs there are tiny sacs of air, which are called alveoli. The average diameter of one of these sacs is 0.25nm. Consider an oxygen molecule(mass=5.3x10^-26kg) trapped with a sac. What is the minimum uncertainty in the velocity of this oxygen molecule?

2. Relevant equations

I'm not sure what equation I should use...then I'll post what the possible answer is

3. The attempt at a solution
