in what scale can we consider the uncertainty principle?can it be considered in the non atomic scale?
The principle states that a minimum exists for the product of the uncertainties in these properties that is equal to or greater than one half of the reduced Planck constant (ħ = h/2π).

The scale of the uncertainty principle refers to the range of values in which the position and momentum of a particle cannot be precisely determined at the same time.
The scale of uncertainty principle is important in quantum mechanics because it sets a fundamental limit on the precision with which certain physical properties of a particle can be known. This has significant implications for our understanding of the behavior of subatomic particles.
The scale of uncertainty principle and Heisenberg's uncertainty principle are essentially the same concept. Both refer to the limitation on simultaneously knowing the position and momentum of a particle with absolute certainty. The scale of uncertainty principle is a more specific term that describes the range of values in which this uncertainty exists.
No, the scale of uncertainty principle only applies to particles and systems at the quantum level. Macroscopic objects have a much larger scale and are governed by classical mechanics, where the uncertainty principle does not apply.
The scale of uncertainty principle affects our ability to measure and predict the behavior of particles by limiting the precision with which we can know their properties. This means that there will always be a level of uncertainty in our measurements and predictions, making it impossible to have complete knowledge of a particle's state.
