Expert Answer:

Max Planck suggested that atoms and molecules could emit or absorb energy only in discrete quantities and not in a continuous manner. Planck gave the name quantum, meaning ‘fixed amount’ to the smallest quantity of energy that can be emitted or absorbed in the form of electromagnetic radiation

Quantisation of energy: Energy is always emitted or absorbed as integral multiple of this quantum. 

E=nhv

n=1,2,3
