Nicholson recognised that the units of Planck's constant are the same as those of angular momentum and so he reasoned that perhaps Planck's constant was a measure of the angular momentum of the orbiting electron.

He then discusses Newton's constant, G, and Planck's constant, h, and concludes, "The values of G, like c and h, depends on the system of units being used and likewise is not a universal constant.
Among the questions are what is Planck's constant and what is its significance, what are some quantum scales of time, why do bosons and fermions have such funny names, what are the big four absolute conservation laws, what is the two-slit experiment and why is it important, how do electrons behave in a metal, what is superconductivity, and what is string theory.
This basic concept leads us to Planck's constant that sets the limit for describing the events that are merely confined to the quantum plane of nature.
Okun did find an important relationship; it is just that the estimates of his coefficient have changed whereas Planck's constant has not.
Further there is a definite limit, Planck's constant, that separates human knowing from the objective knowledge of the position and the velocity of a particle.
