Planck, Max

Planck, Max, 1858-internal link1947, German physicist. From his hypothesis (internal link1900) that atoms emit and absorb energy only in discrete bundles (quanta) instead of continuously, as assumed in classical physics, internal linkQUANTUM MECHANICS was developed. Planck received the 1918 Nobel Prize in physics for his work on BLACKBODY radiation. He was professor (1889-1928) at the Univ. of Berlin and president (1930-35) of the Kaiser Wilhelm Society for the Advancement of Science, Berlin. Planck's constant is named for him.

Science, 1900

A new quantum theory enunciated by German physicist Max Karl Ernst Ludwig Planck, 42, will have enormous impact on scientific thinking. Bodies that radiate energy do not emit the energy constantly but rather in discrete parcels which he calls quantums, says Planck.

Planck's constant

Planck's constant (plängks) noun Symbol h
The constant of proportionality relating the energy of a internal linkphoton to the internal linkfrequency of that photon. Its value is approximately 6.626 × 10-34 joule-second.
[After Max Karl Ernst Ludwig Planck.]

"The man who cannot occasionally internal linkimagine events and conditions of existence that are contrary to the causal principle as he knows it will never enrich his science by the addition of a new idea."

    -- Max Planck

"An important scientific innovation rarely makes its way by gradually winning over and converting its opponents: it rarely happens that Saul becomes Paul. What does happen is that its opponents gradually die out, and that the growing generation is familiarised with the ideas from the beginning."

-- Max Planck
