Planck's constant Is Planck's constant.

The name of our company is due to the great admiration for the man and physicist Max Planck.

At the end of the nineteenth century, Planck presented the theory about the Law of Energy Distribution (of the normal spectrum), which marks the beginning of quantum mechanics. His discovery that light propagates in packets of energy (or quanta) instead of a continuous stream (waves) allowed us to go beyond Newton's physics.

In proposing his theory, Max Planck noted that such "packets of energy" oscillate harmoniously and further, each of these radiant atoms has its own oscillation frequency. From this he concluded that the amount of energy absorbed or emitted is always proportional to the frequency of the atoms.

From the outset Planck had been concerned, for he was not sure whether his constant was a physical reality or a mathematical device. The self-imposed pressure to challenge Isaac Newton had him debating the dilemma for two years; because if he were right, classical physics would be wrong. Finally, on December 14, 1900 Planck presented his thesis to the scientific community, laying the cornerstone of quantum mechanics.

In time: Planck's constant = 6,6256x10-34J.s

DTUcoin is a complementary currency based on the effective reduction of the environmental impact caused by the human being. DTU is the acronym for Diseconomy Traded Units. DTUcoins can be traded or used as a means of payment (ecomomey or green coins) in commercial establishments approved by the ZerO2Nature system. DTUcoins can also be used by companies to neutralize environmental impacts caused by their production processes.
