Explanation: 

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.

Answer: 

No, as hesinberg uncertaininty principle does not support this .
