Quantization of energy

  1. Feb 21, 2013 #1
    I have a basic problem about Planck's quantization of energy, ε=hv. It's said that we can only get the integer product of hv, that's the quantilization. But when we plug in v, we can plug any continuous value? Does that mean a particular standing wave in a capacity is specifield a particular v, and it can obtain the integer product of v, ie. nhv?

    Yes, you can get photons of any energy.
