Imagine playing baseball in a universe where planck's constant was 0.60 J-s. What would be the uncertainty in the position of a .50 kg baseball that is moving 20 m/s with an uncertainty of 1.0 m/s?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

so i know, delta X*delta P=(plancks constant/2pi)/2

I solve for x. and it will tell me the uncertainty for position in the x,

my question is, how do i find out the percent uncertainity for this problem?

Do i do, 1/20 and that will give me % uncertainty? i know basic question..but any help is appreciated.
