Does the Heisenberg Uncertainity Principle mean:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1) If a particle is confined within a length x then it must jiggle around with a momentum given by p ~ h/2x PI

OR

2) If we measure the position of a particle to an accuracy of x then its momentum will be uncertain by ~ h/2x PI
