We are working with uncertainty principles in my chemistry class and I have no idea how to go about answering this question.

Is there a formula that I can use and can someone point me in the right direction?

The question is:
If photons of green light (wavelength=530 nm) are used to locate the position of the basketball (thrown with a velocity of 30 m/s) with precision of one wavelength of the green light, what would be minimum spread in the speed of the baseball?

You need to use the following equations:

[math] E = \frac{{hc}}{\lambda }[/math]
[math] E = m{c^2} [/math]
[math] p = mv [/math]
[math] \Delta x\Delta p \geqslant \frac{\hbar }{2} [/math]
