The work function of metal is 1 eV. Light of wavelength 3000 Å is incident on this metal surface. The velocity of emitted photo-electrons will be
Photoelectric work function of a metal 1 eV. If a light of wavelength 500 Å falls on the metal, the speed of the photoelectron emitted approximately will be- (h = 6.625 × 10–34 J s)
The photoelectric thresshold wavelength of silver is 3250×10−10m. The velocity of the electron ejected from a silver surface by ultraviolet light of wavelength 2536×10−10m is approximately (Given h=4.14×10−15eV and c=3×108ms−1)
A light source of wavelength λ illuminates a metal and ejects photoelectrons with (K.E)max=1eV. Another light source of wavelength λ3, ejects photoelectrons from same metal with (K.E)max=4eV. Find the value of work function of the metal.
When light of wavelength 300 nm (nanometer) falls on a photoelectric emitter, photoelectrons are liberated. For another emitter, however light of 600 nm wavelength is sufficient for creating photoemission. What is the ratio of the work functions of the two emitters
