Using a typical nuclear diameter of 4 25 x 10 15 as
Using a typical nuclear diameter of 4.25 x 10-15 as its location uncertainty, compute the uncertainty in momentum and kinetic energy associated with an electron if it were part of the nucleus. For energies greater than a few MeV, particles such as electrons would escape the nucleus. What does this tell you about the likelihood that an electron resides in the nucleus of an atom?
