This was taken further and it was shown that electron orbitals have discrete energy levels, which explained why gases such as hydrogen emit distinct frequencies when heated instead of emitting radiation all along the spectrum like a blackbody would.

If you want a very good book that explains the very basics of QM and how it was discovered then I recommend the following:

I LOVE that little book. It's small enough to be carried in pocket and has very good explanations that require little to no math to understand. (Though knowing the math helps)Thank you very much for your response and ill definitely check out that book
