Problem 21

When monochromatic ultraviolet light that has a wavelength equal to is incident on a sample of potassium, the emitted electrons have maximum kinetic energy of (a) What is the energy of an incident photon? (b) What is the work function for potassium? (c) What would be the maximum kinetic energy of the electrons if the incident electromagnetic radiation had a wavelength of 430 nm? (d) What is the maximum wavelength of incident electromagnetic radiation that will result in the photoelectric emission of electrons by a sample of potassium?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Dr. Ilia Gogoladze Physics by Walker, 4 edition Force - A push and pull - Forces are what cause any change in the velocity of an object Classes of Forces - Contact forces o Involve physical contact between two objects - Field forces o Act through empty space. o No physical contact is required Fundamental Forces - Gravitational force o Between objects - Electromagnetic forces o Between electric charges - Strong force o Between subatomic particles (quarks, gluons) - Weak forces o Between subatomic particles Forces - A spring can be used to calibrate the magnitude of a force. - Doubling the force causes double the reading on the spring
