Answer to Question #52823 in Other Physics for Chris
Basic wave theory predicted that a blackbody should put out more energy at higher frequencies. In reality, above the peak frequency a real blackbody emits less radiation with increasing frequency. Planck was able to explain this contradiction by assuming that light energy is quantized and that higher frequencies of light have a bigger quantum. Explain why light energy being quantized this way means that a blackbody will emit less energy at higher frequencies.
