h is a constant in Planck's equation but I have not seen anything written saying that the frequency cannot be arbitrarily small, thus making E arbitrarily small. Is it that v is only allowed to be integral (after all, when we're measuring a frequency we're essentially counting how many times something happens) and if it happens to be a fractional frequency we would just change the unit of time to make it integral again?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
