Light of wavelength 3000Å falls on a metal surface having work function 2.3 eV. Calculate the maximum velocity of ejected electrons
(Planck's constant h = 6.63 x 10-34 J.s., Velocity of light c = 3 x 108 m/s, mass of an electron = 9.1 x 10-31 kg)
Using analytical method for interference bands, obtain an expression for path difference between two light waves.
Determine the change in wavelenght of light during its passage from air to glass, if the refracrtive index of glass with respect to air is 1.5 and the frequency of light is 5 x 1014 Hz. Find the wave number of light in glass (velocity of light in air c = 3 X 108 m/s)
The minimum angular separation between two stars is 4 × 10−6 rad, if telescope is used to observe them with an objective of aperture 16 cm. Find the wavelength of light used.
