I need some clarification in my understanding of HUP with respect to electron in an atom. This is my current understanding,
- Position of electron here means which orbit (Quatized orbits around nucleus) electron is located
- Momentum indicates the spin, how fast the the EMF rotates due to energy of an electron
- HUP says that if position i.e., the orbit is precisely known, then its momentum i.e, the spin is less precisely known
I believe my understanding is incorrect. The reason is it leads to a contradiction. If position is precisely known, we would know its energy level (energy level is related to orbit). If energy level is known we can figure out the momentum (because momentum and energy are directly related). Contradiction!
