This question already has an answer here:
I understand we cannot state with arbitrary precision the position and momentum of a micro-particle as we superpose infinite waves to create a wave packet at the exact position of the particle and hence cannot say which wave is corresponding to its momentum. This is theoretically said. Also some people say that measurement of one disturbs the other and some say it's reality.
Firstly, the theoretical explanation: why should I consider that a wave out of many superposed will give us the momentum or position? We might use another single wave which is not sine in nature and might get the results. Or why won't a single sine wave suffice? This all considers the micro-particle as wave because of de Broglie.
Secondly, the practical thing seems legit.
Thirdly, the electron must have some kinetic energy and position. It is who we are measuring and can't get it exact so why blame the electron as in theoretical concept. How we quantify the uncertainty, it must depend on the measuring device and various other factors.
I might need to edit this post based on your answer so that I can explain more clearly my thinking.
Edit: From here is what gets the measurement problem:
Text: Imagine that you're blind and over time you've developed a technique for determining how far away an object is by throwing a medicine ball at it. If you throw your medicine ball at a nearby stool, the ball will return quickly, and you'll know that it's close. If you throw the ball at something across the street from you, it'll take longer to return, and you'll know that the object is far away. The problem is that when you throw a ball -- especially a heavy one like a medicine ball -- at something like a stool, the ball will knock the stool across the room and may even have enough momentum to bounce back. You can say where the stool was, but not where it is now. What's more, you could calculate the velocity of the stool after you hit it with the ball, but you have no idea what its velocity was before you hit it. This is the problem revealed by Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle. To know the velocity of a quark we must measure it, and to measure it, we are forced to affect it. The same goes for observing an object's position. Uncertainty about an object's position and velocity makes it difficult for a physicist to determine much about the object.
Edit: After seeing this answer one of my doubts is very well cleared, the other answers are also written and helpful:
Text: There is a definine velocity and momentum, we just don't know it. Nope. There is no definite velocity--this was the older interpretation. The particle has all (possible) velocities at once;it is in a wavefunction, a superposition of all of these states. This can actually be verified by stuff like the double-slit experiment with one photon--we cannot explain single-photon-fringes unless we accept the fact that the photon is in "both slits at once".So, it's not a knowledge limit. The particle really has no definite position/whatever.
