Uncertanity in angular momentum (1 Viewer)

The uncertanity in two components of angular momentum in quantum mechanics is propotional to the third component. What is the physical picture of this result.
I think u want to ask that the product of uncertanity in two components of angular momentum is greater then or equals to the average value of the third component. As long as I know. it has got something to do with the commutation relation of two components of agular momentum. I cant imagin any physical picture of this result , but it will be interesting if any one have.
