In physics, a quantum is the minimum amount of any physical entity involved in an interaction. behind this, one finds the fundamental notion that a physical property may be "quantized," referred to as "the hypothesis of quantization". this means that the magnitude can take on only certain discrete values. there is a related term of quantum number. an example of an entity that is quantized is the energy transfer of elementary particles of matter through bosons and of photons.
