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

Suppose the minimum uncertainty in the position of a particle is equal to its de Broglie wavelength. If the particle has an average speed of 4.7 105 m/s, what is the minimum uncertainty in its speed?

2. Relevant equations

lambda=h/p & (Py)(Y) is greater than or equal to h/4pi

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm not really sure where to start
