Planck's constant relates the energy in one photon of electromagnetic radiation to the frequency of that radiation. m2*kg/s is the same as Joule*second, as a joule is a kg *m2*s-2, so this multiplied by frequency in Hz (or s-1) would yield energy.
Planck's constant is used to relate the energy in one photon or packet of energy (quanta) of electromagnetic radiation to its frequency. His idea was that a charged particle oscillating at a frequency (nu) can exchange energy with its surroundings by generating or absorbing electromagnetic radiation only in discrete packets of energy of magnitude . And thus, the frequency will be detected when an oscillating atoms releases a packet of energy of magnitude E into its surroundings.
