Uncertainty Principle and angular position

  1. Nov 25, 2008 #1
    Verify that the uncertainty principle can be expressed in the form [​IMG], where [​IMG]is the uncertainty in the angular momentum of a particle, and [​IMG] is the uncertainty in its angular position. (You may think of a particle, mass m, moving in a circle of fixed radius r, with speed v)

    b) At what uncertainty in L will the angular position of a particle become completely indeterminate?
