Homework Help: Uncertainty principle questions.

  1. Nov 20, 2008 #1
    Does the uncertainty principle apply to nature itself or only to the results of experiments? That is, is it the position and momentum that are really uncertain, or merely our knowledge of them? Does it make any difference?

    Nature itself has decided that there is no state in which both position and momentum of a a particle are sharply defined.
