Question

Photoelectrons are observed when a metal surface is illuminated by light with a wavelength 437 nm. The stopping potential for the photoelectrons in this experiment is 1.67V.

a. What is the work function of the metal, in eV?

b. What type of metal is used in this experiment?

c. What is the maximum speed of the ejected electrons?

Answer #2

Energy of the light beam

eV

eV

As the stopping potential is equal to 1.67 V, so the maximum kinetic energy of the ejected electrons is

eV.

a)

From the energy conservation in Photoelectric effect we know that, for a surface having work function W,

So, the work function of the metal is

eV.

b)

For non-relativistic limit , the kinetic energy relation is given by

m/sec

A metal surface has a work function of 3.18 eV. Determine
whether photoelectrons are ejected or not and if so, calculate
their maximum kinetic energy, when the surface is illuminated by
light of wavelength of
(a) 310 nm and (b) 460 nm.

The stopping potential for photoelectrons emitted from a
surface illuminated by light of wavelength 490nm is 0.70V. When the
incident wavelength is changed to a new value, the stopping
potential is found to be 1.40V. What is the work function for the
surface? What is this new wavelength?

The stopping potential for electrons emitted from a surface
illuminated by light of wavelength 567 nm is 0.932 V. When the
incident wavelength is changed to a new value, the stopping
potential is 2.00 V.

(b) What is the work function for the surface

The stopping potential for electrons emitted from a surface
illuminated by light of wavelength 500 nm is 0.770 V. When the
incident wavelength is changed to a new value, the stopping
potential is 1.40 V. (a) What is this new
wavelength? (b) What is the work function for the
surface?

When ultraviolet light with a wavelength of 262 nm falls upon a
clean metal surface, the stopping potential necessary to terminate

When ultraviolet light with a wavelength of 400 nm falls on a
certain metal surface, the maximum kinetic energy of the emitted

when light of wavelength 340 nm falls on the same surface?
Use h = 6.63×10−34 J⋅s for Planck's constant and c =
3.00×108 m/s for the speed of light and express your
answer in electron volts.

Photons with a wavelength of 440 nm illuminate a metal
surface. There is also a uniform magnetic field of 25 ?T in the
region. Thus, electrons ejected from the metal are bent into
circular arcs with radii ranging from essentially zero up to a
maximum radius of 12 cm.
