Talk:Werner Heisenberg

Exact statement of the indetermination principleEdit

Upon verifying the initial statement in "Über den anschaulichen Inhalt der quantentheoretischen Kinematik und Mechanik" in Zeitschrift für Physik, 43 (1927), there's no trace of the second part quoted "In the most extreme case, absolute precision of one variable would entail absolute imprecision regarding the other". This part seems to emanate from the AIP site. Unless someone can source it, I propose to remove it.--Arjen Dijksman 18:06, 5 September 2009 (UTC)


double quoteEdit

Quote that starts with "I remember discussions with Bohr which..." is given twice —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 08:59, 10 August 2011

Fixed. (You can fix this sort of thing yourself.) ~ Ningauble 18:12, 10 August 2011 (UTC)

Speed camEdit

I didn't dare to put this into the "Quotes about Heisenberg" section:

Police officer with speedcam: "Man, do you know how fast you've been driving!?"
Heisenberg: "I have no idea, but I do know precisely where I am."
