The photoelectric current in a photoelectric cell can be reduced to zero by a stopping potential of 1.8 volt. Monochromatic light of wavelength 2200Å is incident on the cathode. Find the maximum kinetic energy of the photoelectrons in joules. [Charge on electron = 1.6 x 10-19 C]
The photoelectric work function for a metal is 4.2 eV. If the stopping potential is 3V, find the threshold wavelength and maximum kinetic energy of emitted electrons.

The photoelectric work function for a metal surface is 2.3 eV. If the light of wavelength 6800A is incident on the surface of metal, find threshold frequency and incident frequency. Will there be an emission of photoelectrons or not?

The work functions for potassium and caesium are 2.25 eV and 2.14 eV respectively. Is the photoelectric effect possible for either of them if the incident wavelength is 5180 Å?
