What does it mean for something to be quantized?

Something that is quantized can only have discrete values or quantities of something. In our case, that would be energy.

When you say "discrete values" does that mean it can only have one value at a time or just a small range of values?

I think what JT means by discrete values are values that are of existence; it can't be something like infinity or an imaginary number like i, but rather a number that we can quantify in numerical values.

Additionally, in the case of the energy levels of electrons being quantized, it means that they have to have the energy at a distinct level, ie. n=1 or n=2, and cannot have levels of energy between those distinct levels.

In our case, the thing being quantized is energy. When energy is quantized, energy is packaged into small discrete packets of energy called quanta.
