Its an answer that I'm not 100% sure of.


was asked to show experimental results that require the emission of energy is quantized.



The photoelectric effect is an example. In the photoelectric effect, energy bundles (photons) are abserved to have a definite size (quantized).

You'd probably want to elaborate on that alot more.

Yes, the photo-electric effect is a good example. Now, what exactly was it about the results of that experiment that prove energy comes in bundles?

(And who wrote the major paper on this? Hint: he wrote it in 1905, 100 years ago along with three other important papers that year.)

Another hint:
He didn't notice that his regular hair-dresser had been fired due to incompetence.
