Question

photoelectric effect problem: work function for particular metal given what wavelength could cause the photo electrons to be released from sodium. Make up a problem with made up values and solve show all equations used to solve

Answer #1

Let on material Sodium has Work Funtion = 2.28 eV ,Find the wavelenth of the incident Light which is resposible for emission of photo electrons.

Sollution:

SO energy of photon = WOrk function

h * f = W_{o} [Here h = planks constant and f =
frequency and Wo = workfunction]

So f = W_{o} / h = 2.28 eV / 6.63 * 10^{-34} =
(2.28 * 1.6 *10^{-19 )} / 6.63 * 10^{-34} = 5.50 *
10^{14} Hz

So frequency of Incident Light = 5.50 * 10^{14} Hz

Now as se know that Speed of light (c) = Wavelenth * frequency

So wavelength = c/f = 3 * 10 ^{8} /5.50 * 10^{14
=} 5.45 *10 ^{-7} = 534 nm

**SO wavelength of Light = 534 nm**

The photoelectric effect describes electrons being ejected from
a metal. Assume that a wavelength of light has caused electrons to
be emitted from a metal.
a. What would be observed if only the intensity of the light is
increased?
b. What would be observed if only the frequency of the light was
increased?

1. To observe the photoelectric effect in a given metal, the
work function is measured to be 2.6 eV. If light with 2.28 eV
photons shines on this metal, will the photons not be absorbed,
i.e. will they pass through the metal?
2. Sketch the typical structure of bands for a metal and for a
semiconductor indicating which states are filled. Why do metals
show the full rainbow upon thermal emission but semiconductors give
off dominantly just one color?

Utilizing the photoelectric effect, a student fund that it
required light with a maximum wavelength of 351 nm to dislodge
electrons from a polished zinc metal surface. A) What is the work

m.s-1, of the ejected electron when incident radiation of 298 nm is
used (hint: me = 9.11 x 10 -31kg ). I dont need just the answer, I
got this wrong and need to know how...

the previous question, and you get ejected electrons with a maximum
kinetic energy of 2.5 eV. What will happen if...

3. photoelectric effect:
a. What is the maximum kinetic energy of electrons ejected from
barium (W0=2.48eV) when illuminated by white light,
lambda=410-750nm?
b. The work functions for sodium, cesium, copper, and iron are
2.3, 2.1, 4.7, and 4.5eV, respectively. Which of these metals will

how you did the problem, and a potential way to check! Thank
you!

A certain metal has a work function of 2.6 eV. (a) What is the
shortest wavelength of the electromagnetic radiation that will
eject electrons from this material? (b) If light of wavelength 420
nm is used, what will be the speed of the emitted electrons?

In a photoelectric experiment, the work function of the material
from which electrons are ejected equals 2.5eV. What is the maximum
wavelength of light for which electrons are ejected from this
material and what stopping voltage is required when light, having a
wave lengthof 3.5x 10-7m, is used with this material(if one may
take for Planck’s constant, h = 6.63 x 10−34Js, for the speed of
light, c = 3.0 x 108m/s, and noting that:1 eV = 1.6 x 10−19J)?
