It is common to see these days that the word quantum appears in magazines, business, movies and other places. However, many people do not know what quantum means much less their history or the relevance it has for understanding the nature of our Universe. Quantum as a noun means a particular quantity; as an adjective it means sudden and significant. In physics, quantum means, as a noun, the smallest amount of radiant energy, equal to the Planck constant multiplied by the frequency of the associated radiation; and the fundamental unit of a quantified physical quantity, such as angular momentum.
