Could someone explain the formula:
E=hf

I don't understand what the h signifies or what the formula it is used for specifically. I searched this on wikipedia but the information is too complicated for me.

it's a constant that relates energy and frequency of a wave.

BTW, it's Planck and not "plank."

Planck's constant (h) is simply a constant (duh) which relates the energy with the frequency of an electromagnetic wave.
