This may be a dumb question, but I am still new the the concept of the quantum world... If we can't measure position and momentum precisely at the same time, why can't we use 2 detectors? One to measure position, and one to measure momentum. Have them take the measurement at the same time, and you have a "Work around". I fully understand it won't work, but I don't understand WHY! Could someone explain why this doesn't work?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks to all in advance, and I appreciate everyone here as you have provided answers to many questions I have had in the past.
