Problem 21P

The work function of gold is 4.58 eV. What frequency of light must be used to eject electrons from a gold surface with a maximum kinetic energy of 6.48 × 10−19 J?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 21 P:

Step 1 of 1:-

Here, we have to find the frequency of the incident light which will emit the electrons with a maximum kinetic energy of .

Given that,

.

From the equation of photoelectric effect,

So, the frequency of incident photon is .

Step 2 of 1
