In quantum physics, a principle that states you can never be exactly sure of both the position and the velocity of an atomic particle. The more accurately you know one of these properties, the less accurately you can know the other.
This is not an observational problem. Rather, quantum particles have an intrinsic uncertainty: they do not have well-defined positions and momentum.
