A quantum of energy can be thought of as a little packet of energy. It is NOT the amount of energy it takes for a electron to get from one energy level to the next.
The quantum theory developed at the beginning of the last century tells us that energy changes in atoms happens when these little packets of energy are taken in or given out.
The value of the quantum of energy (in this case, a photon) can be calculated using the equation E = hf where E is the energy in joules, h is Planck's constant, and f is the frequency in hertz

# Why in quantum physics energy is quantized?

Planck formulated an equation for energy quanta, which is quantized into E=hf (where E is energy, h is Planck's constant: 6.626x10-27 , and f is frequency) to obtain his own e

# What is quantum of energy?

A quantum of energy is a specific amount of energy given off when an excited electron drops an energy level.

# What is a quantum of energy as defined in the Quantum Mechanical Model?

It isn't so much a matter of there being a given "quantum of energy" as much as energy is quantized. This means that particles that behave quantum mechanical laws can only hav

# What is quantum theory of energy?

In Planck's assumption, radiant energy is emitted in small bursts, known as "quanta". Each of the bursts called a "quantum" has energy E that depends on the frequency f of the

# A quantum of energy as defined in the Quantum Mechanical Model is a?

exact, whole number amount of energy needed to move an electron to a higher energy level

# What is a quantum of energy as defined by quantum mechanics?

The value of the quantum of energy depends on the particulars of the quantum system being modeled. A quantum of energy is a quantity of energy which a quantum system will acce

# How do you calculate energy per quantum?

E=hv where h is Planck's constant (6.62 X 10~27 erg -sec) and v is  the frequency

# What is a quantum of light energy?

A quantum of energy is the most basic unit of energy. According to the quantum theory put forward by German physicist Max Planck in 1900, energy exists as discrete particles c

# Who discovered quantum energy?

Probably the best answer is Max Planck, who discovered that energy was quantized.

# Is a quantum is a small energy unit?

No. A quantum is a small and indivisible unit of SOMETHING, which might be energy, charge, spin, or several other things.

# What does the term quantum of energy mean?

Specific quantity of energy

# What is law of quantum energy and quantum mass?

In the universe energy, matter and go as per quantum. Energy is released in quantum of photon. Electron has a quantum mass. Proton has quantum mass. Both has a quantum charge.

# What is law of quantum energy quantum mass?

I don't think there is such a law. I suspect you just mixed up several terms.

# What is quantum of electromagnetic energy?

It's what we call a "photon". Its energy is the product of itsfrequency and Planck's Konstant. No smaller bundle of energy can exist at thatfrequency.

# Why is energy a quantum?

Energy, along with matter, space, and time, comes in the form of very small units or packages, called quanta; that is the basic discovery of what is known as quantum mechanics
