Uncertainty of spin measurement outcomes

Uncertainty of spin measurement outcomes

The Uncertainty of spin measurement outcomes simulation aims to help students develop an understanding of quantum uncertainty by allowing students to send spin ½ particles through up to three successive Stern-Gerlach apparatuses (SGAs), and changing the orientation of the second SGA. The simulation shows the individual measurement outcomes, the measurement outcome probabilities and the uncertainty in the spin measurement outcome of the...
