Δ E = Δ nh ν where h is Planck’s constant, 6.63 × 10 -34 J s and n is an integer Max Planck explored the relationship between intensity and frequency of light emitted of a hot object. The wavelength of the light emitted is dependent of the temperature (vibrational frequency of the atoms) of the object. In 1900 Planck describes energy as being quantized. Only discrete amounts of energy are lost or gained. Planck and Black Body Radiation Chp. 6.2
In 1905 Einstein describes light as behaving like both a particle and wave . Light can be described as little quantized packets of energy called photons. Einstein and the Photoelectric Effect Chp. 6.2 E = h ν

Na K Li Flame Analysis Chp. 6.3
Classical physics couldn’t explain all natural phenomena black body radiation - radiation given off by extremely hot objects due to vibrating atoms. Color is dependent on temperature not material. No single theory described behavior for all frequencies of radiation.
