Classical physics vs Quantum Mechanics Problem

Classical physics is________. This means that the motions of observed objects can be known ________.
Quantum mechanics is_______. The motions within a system are described based upon ________.
This is consistent with the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle, which states that the more that is known about the position of the particle, the less that is known about its ________.

Word bank:
deterministic
probabilistic
velocity
exactly
probability
composition

Classical physics is deterministic. This means that the motions of observed objects can be known exactly.
Quantum mechanics is probabilistic . The motions within a system are described based upon probability.
This is consistent with the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle, which states that the more that is known about the position of the particle, the less that is known about its velocity.
