Caption: Heisenberg's uncertainty principle equation. This equation describes the principle articulated in 1927 by the German physicist Werner Heisenberg, that the position (x) and the momentum (p) of an object cannot both be measured exactly, at the same time, even in theory. This removed absolute determinacy (cause and effect) from physics, replacing it with statistical probability. The equation was derived by Earle Hesse Kennard and Hermann Wey.
