# Planck's constant has the dimensions of

Angular momentum

##### SOLUTION
Planck's constant, symbolized h, relates the energy in one quantum (photon) of electromagnetic radiation to the frequency of that radiation.

$h=\dfrac Ev=\dfrac{[ML^2T^{-2}]}{[T^{-1}]}=[ML^2T^{-1}]$

Angular momentum $=$ Moment of inertia $\times$ Angular velocity (Angular momentum)

$=[ML^2][T^{-1}]=[ML^2T^{-1}]$

So, here we can see that both the Planck's constant and Angular momentum have the same dimensions.
