Uncertainty

According to uncertainty principle we canít specify the exact energy of system in a distinc time On the other hand we say that for example: at t=0 system is in basic state of energy and according to time revolution we can specify itís energy at the next time. There are contradiction!

The uncertainty principle is not so much about a single quantity as about quantities in combination: the point is that you can measure one but you lose accuracy in another quantity, therefore you can't know EVERYTHING about an atom or system at a time.

For instance, if you measure the position of an atom then you can't know its exact speed at that time and vice versa: gaining knowledge in one area means you cannot be exactly sure in another.
