position
In Mathematics, position is not equivalent to location, but to the change in location
(Δx). This leads Heisenberg to conclude erroneously that we cannot know both the
position and momentum of a subatomic particle. He is not talking about where the
bead is at a specific time. He is talking about the change is static states of the bead,
now here, later there. He pits this compares this against momentum (the velocity
that the particle has at these two locations). the location of an electron bead. He is
talking about the change in location of an electron bead.
1. Occupied space. (Where the word 'occupied' is not used in the sense of
displacement, but rather as superposition.) 2. position: A hypothetical or imaginary
volume of space occupied by a real object; the object itself.
