Topics

description

  • Einstein's equation Emax = hυ - W0; threshold frequency
  • Einstein used Planck’s ideas and extended it to apply for radiation (light); the photoelectric effect can be explained only assuming the quantum (particle) nature of radiation.
  • Determination of Planck’s constant (from the graph of stopping potential Vs versus frequency f of the incident light).
  • Momentum of photon p = E/c = hν/c = h/λ.
