Hi everyone,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Anybody knows if the photon energy (frequency * Planck's constant) can be derived from more basic physical principles or this formula was "invented" to explain the photo-electric effect or black body radiation?

If you know a way to derive it, please share.

Thanks a lot !!
