Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle

Q. Assume an electron in the ground state of the hydrogen atom moves at an average speed of 5.00x10^6 m/s. If the speed is known to an uncertainty of 1 percent, what is the minimum uncertainty in its position? The radius of the hydrogen atom in the ground state is 5.29x10^-11 m. The mass of an electron is 9.1094x10^-31 kg.
