Hi, I'm having a hard time understanding what exactly it means to be quantized.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know that electromagnetic radiation is quantized, and that means coming in little "packages" of energy, I can't really wrap my head around this, and would like if someone could explain this a better way maybe?

Would this then apply that photons are essentially these "packages" of energy?

Thanks
