  Why does E = hv?

+ 0 like - 2 dislike

Let's say we have a clock near an event horizon of a black hole which could tick one million times slower than one on Earth. Why should frequency then be proportional to energy, since it seems like frequencies would be relatively longer near more energy?

Closed as per community consensus as the post is high-school level. PhysicsForums.com is a more appropriate home for this question.

Voting to close as high-school level. PO is a graduate-level+ site; PhysicsForums.com would be a more appropriate home for this question.

Alright, well could you just tell me the answer if you close it.
