prior probability calculation

Hi there; I know that based on Bayesian Theoreom: Posterior probability = Prior Probability x Likelihood
Now if we have a parameter as A with minimum and maximum values of 1.2 and 2.2 respectively then I like to use the Uniform distribution for this parameter so if the chosen value of this parameter (A) is: 1.7 then based on Uniform distribution: P(A) = (1 / (2.21.2))= 1 or 100% is this right?
