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

The position of a proton is measured with an accuracy of [tex]\Delta[/tex]x = 10^-11 m

Calculate [tex]\Delta[/tex]x one second later. Assume v << c.

2. Relevant equations

Heisenbergs uncertainty principle perhaps.

3. The attempt at a solution

I assume this requires knowledge about how the particle function evolves over time, but because the function is unknown in this case, its random how it evolves...
