This concept is inferred from quantum mechanics. According to quantum mechanics, electrons can absorb or emit energy by a discrete amount of energy called quanta. This follows from the two of contradict the theory of the wave-particle theory of light. It was widely accepted already that the light behaves as a wave. However, questions remain unanswered about why the electromagnetic waves that emit or absorb light at specific frequencies. Until Planck proposed his equation: E = hv, where E is the energy, h is called Planck's constant and ν is the frequency.In this equation, means that increases the energy is progressing in discrete amounts of frequencies, and this constant is denoted by h.
