I was reading Bransden's Quantum Mechanics 2nd edition, chapter 2 page 61. There,it says "It should be noted that since E =hv (v for nu), the absolute value of the frequency has no physical significance in Quantum mechanics..."(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Why is that? Isn't this a contradiction?
