Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle

 

A quantum-mechanical principle with the consequence that the position and momentum of an object cannot be precisely determined. The Heisenberg principle helps determine the size of electron clouds, and hence the size of atoms.

A consequence from quantum mechanics: the position and the momentum of a particle can not be determined with the same accuracy at the same time. When for example the speed of an electron is well known, it's position is unpredictable within a certain volume. This effect is negligible in macroscopic dimensions.
