# Select True or False for the following statements about Heisenberg-'s.docx

Select True or False for the following statements about Heisenberg\'s Uncertainty Principle True It is not possible to measure simultaneously the x and z positions of a particle \'exactly. FalseIt is not possible to measure simultaneously the x and y momentum components of a particle exactly. FalseIt is possible to measure simultaneously the x position and the x momentum component of a particle exactly. Submit Answer Incorrect. Tries 1/3 Previous Tries
Solution
part 1
x and z positions are independent. Thus, simultaneous measurement is possible - False
part 2
both position and momentum of a particle cannot be simultaneously measured simulataneously accurately but momentum can be measured accurately so x and y momentum components of a particle can be measured exactly. False
part 3
it is just opposite of the definition of Heisenberg\'s Uncertainty Principle. False
.
