Max Karl Ernst Ludwig Planck 1858 - 1947 was a German physicist who was of the first people to contribute to the invention of quantum theory After studying physics at Munchen University he moved to Berlin where in 1889 Planck discovered a new fundamental constant h which is named Plancks constant It is among other things used to calculate the energy of a photon which are energy atoms His discoveries showed that in addition to the atomistic structure of matter energy also possesses an atomistic structure which is governed by the universal constant h A year later Planck discovered the Law of Heat Radiation also known as Plancks Law of Radiation This law uses Plancks constant h the Boltzman constant k and the speed of light to show the intensity of radiation emitted by a units surface area into a fixed direction This law became the basis of quantum theory and Planck was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1918 for his work From 1905 to 1909 Planck was the head of the German Physical Society Then in 1913 Planck became head of Berlin University Plancks work opened up the floodgates to the studies of quantum theory and led to many additional discoveries by various scientists Without his discovery of Plancks constant it would a workable theory the energy processes that govern the transformations of atoms and molecules would not have emerged His theories dramatically altered former physical mechanics and electrodynamics and significantly contributed to the quest for scientific knowledge of energy Works Cited Max Planck - Wikipedia Max Planck 12 Feb 2006 Wikipedia the Free Encyclopedia 12 Feb 2006 lthttpenwikipediaorgwikiMaxPlanckgt McNeil PhD Russell Malaspinia Great Books - Max Planck 1858 Malaspina Great Books 12 Feb 2006 lthttpwwwmalaspinaorghomeasptopicsearchdetailslastpagesearchresultsID300gt Quantum mechanics - Wikipedia Quantum Mechanics 12 Feb 2006 Wikipedia the Free Encyclopedia 12 Feb 2006 lthttpenwikipediaorgwikiQuantummechanicsgt
