# Uncertainty Calculator (Heisenberg's Principle)

The Uncertainty Calculator (Heisenberg's Principle) will calculate the:

1. One of uncertainties among that of particle's position and momentum when the other uncertainty is known
2. One of uncertainties among that of particle's energy and time interval in which it possesses that energy when the other uncertainty is known

Calculation Parameters: Medium of propagation is assumed as vacuum
