Quantum Mechanics: Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle Explained
Physics can be a real mind bender, but this educational video will show you how to wrap your head around Heisenberg's uncertainty principle. And no, that's not the same Heisenberg that's in Breaking Bad. We're talking about the famous German theoretical physicist Werner Heisenberg, someone whose work you'd be more likely to see in Fringe.
Physics tells us that you can't know exactly where you are and where you are going at the same time. The uncertainty principle explains that you can't measure a particle's exact velocity and location, but Dr. Carlson takes on the challenge of explaining it all in this special episode of Science Theater.
