I have been doing chemistry for way too long I am about to shoot myself and 27 innocent immigrants.

Here is the question:

Okay there are two possible answers, I suspect the first one is the one they are looking for but this could be another damn trick questionHow is the energy of a quantum related to the frequency of emitted radiation

1)

anyway to find the energy of aphotonyou do the following:

energy = h(planck's constant) * frequency

2)

the other possible answer is that the energy of a quantum never changes because a quantum is the smallest 'packet' of energy that matter can gain or lose.

someone please tell me which they think is correct and why
