Ultraviolet light of wavelength λ1 and λ2(λ2>λ1)when allowed to fall on hydrogen atoms in their ground state is found to liberate electrons with kinetic energies E1and E2 respectively. The value of Planck's constant can be found from the relation :

Suppose the frequency of the photons are ν1 and ν2 (ν1>ν1). Where, ν=c/λ. According to the question: hν1−E0=E1 hν2−E0=E2 , where, E0 is the ionization energy of the hydrogen. Solving this two equation we will get:
So, the answer is option (C).

If E1,E2andE3 represent respectively the kinetic energies of an electron, an alpha particle and a proton, each having same de-Broglie wavelength then?
If electron, proton and alpha particle have the same wavelength and kinetic energies , and , then the order of their kinetic energies E1,E2andE3,then the order of their kinetic energies is given by :
If E1,E2andE3 represents the kinetic energy of an electron, an alpha particle and a proton each having same de-Broglie’s wavelength then
If E1,E2,E3andE4 are the energies required to knock off the 1st,2nd,3rdand4th electrons (from the last shell) respectively from outermost orbit of the Carbon atom, choose the correct option:
