“The more precisely the position is determined, the less precisely the momentum is known in this instant, and vice versa.”
--Heisenberg, uncertainty paper, 1927
This principle is related to the observer effect. In physics, the term observer effect refers to changes that the act of observation will make on the phenomenon being observed.
