I had this freshman come to my office hours yesterday and asked how Planck knew that energy is quantized. I gave him a hand-waving answer, but then felt bad about not being prepared enough (even though the topic hadn't been covered yet in lecture) and prepared a long answer involving entropy and Boltzmann and the like to present in recitation today. Turns out the kid isn't even in my recitation. Damn freshmen.

Ouch... you need to put up a sign: "No Freebies".

Well, now I want to know how he knew energy was quantized. I'll ask you next time I see you.
