Answer:

He postulated that energy was emitted during transitions of electrons from an allowed orbital to another inside the atom.

Explanation:

Emission or absorption spectra were photons of light at fixed (quantized) values of energy emitted or absorbed when electron changed orbits.
The energy of each photon depended upon frequency #f# as:
#E=hf#
With #h# representing Planck's constant.
