h is a constant Alan. How can f define h, when h is defined via e, and f is defined via e, and then e is defined via e=hf? This is a circular route...The classroom experiment http://www.scienceinschool.org/2014/issue28/planck measures the energy required to produce a photon of a given frequency. E and f are experimental variables measured independently, and their ratio turns out to be a constant known as h.

Planck noticing that there were bandwidths of increase in thermal energy that caused no change to the frequency of light, and that it took quantised leaps of an increase in energy to cause the frequency of light to change.drivel

Using e=hf to calculate a gravitational shift in light, what is causing the e of this h?In the case of the classic mossbauer photon, it's the quantum transition from a metastable state of the Fe57 nucleus to the ground state. The other well-known astronomical measurement is the spin-flip of the hydrogen electron in its ground state, emitting a 1420.405751786 MHz photon (the "21 cm line")

Yes, gravitational redshift, blueshift of light...got it. Simple. Particles with mass gravitationally shift in the 'opposite' direction in the gravitational gradient, 'this' being my point!Free particles gain kinetic energy as they accelerate towards a mass (everyday gravitation!). Photons gain kinetic energy (blueshift) as they travel towards a mass. What on earth are you talking about?
