It is noted that the Heisenberg uncertainty relations set a lower bound on the product of variances of two observablesA, B when they are separately measured on two distinct, but identically prepared ensembles. A new uncertainty relation is derived for the product of the variances of the two observablesA, B when they are measured sequentially on a single ensemble of systems. It is shown that the two uncertainty relations differ significantly wheneverA andB are not compatible.
