### Plack's constant

I'm not entirely sure. But i assume it cannot be any other value other than what it already is since it is a 'constant'

If Planck's constant was zero then E=hv would not be possible as well as the De Broglie equation would also not work since they would both equal zero. Researching I found that the Planck constant is a "physical constant that is the quantum of action, central in quantum mechanics."
