## Main Question or Discussion Point

I could do with some help understanding this.

That einstein photon particle energy equation

E=hf

Considering the mimimum energy ( planck energy ) set E = h

That means f=1

What? Is the f dimension in 1/sec? It can't be right. Why would the minimum (planck) frequency happen to be 1 per sec? It looks like f must be non dimemsional. But if f is non dimensional, how does the equation relate to the wave aspect of the photon?

For photons c= f * wavelength

Somethings wrong with my understanding. I've looked at wiki and that didn't help.

Once I've got this sorted, I eventually want to undestand the limitations the planck constant sets on the wave aspect of photons.

Thanks
