In this lesson on Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle Using Diffraction, which is part of Unit 4 Area of Study 2 for VCE Physics, you’ll learn how to:
- explain how diffraction from a single slit experiment can be used to illustrate Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle
- explain why classical laws of physics are not appropriate to model motion at very small scales.
Overview of Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle
This video will explain how the central maxima width changes when the slit width is changed.
