I'm studying for my introduction to modern physics exam, and reading about the ultraviolet catastrophe and why equipartition theorem stops working to explain blackbody emissions for high frequencies I was thinking if we could use the theorem to arrive at the quantification of energy (probably the answer is no).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I remember my professor saying that at some point we'll learn how we can arrive at the quantification of energy fromsomehypotheses, but I don't remember what that was.

Thanks!
