Give an example of a physical entity that is quantized. State specifically what the entity is and what the limits are on its values.

To determine

An example of a physical entity that is quantized. Also, define the term entity and state the the limits on its values.

Explanation

Introduction:

Quantization is the concept for physical quantity which is changing for particular time and this change cannot be observed continuously but only for certain time period.

Charge particles are quantized, angular momentum is quantized, energy is quantized in black body radiation.

The value of charge particle is quantized in form of (ne) where n is the number of quantized particles and e is the electron. So, the minimum value of quantized charge is equal to the value of e.

Conclusion:

Thus, quantized particle is having the change value for the given time example of quantized entity is charge.
