Can we determine the position and velocity of electron at the same moment ? And why ?

According to the heisenberg principle ; one at any moment cannot know both an electron's position and momentum . So, we can either know the position of the electron at an instant or the velocity but never both at the exact same moment.


No, as hesinberg uncertaininty principle does not support this .
