  1. “Quantum” isn’t either big or small, but means having a discrete unit or change in a case where it wasn’t supposed to have made sense. IOW, electromagnetic waves seems to be continuous and without any specific connection to units of energy (other than arbitrary units used to measure them) but then we found out that light could only be emitted or absorbed in units proportional to energy E = h nu. You all know this, I wanted to make a nice wrap of the term.
