The uncertainty principle is about our measuring instruments, not about the particles themselves

You got to love physics at smaller levels. While the math is daunting and the phenomenon is hard to understand, we need to know at least some basic things, like the uncertainty principle. that principle tells us that if you try to find the position of a particle you won’t be able to know exactly […]
