Question

The work function for a metal surface is 2.2eV. If the light of wavelength 5000Å is incident on the surface of the metal, find the threshold frequency and incident frequency. Will there be an emission of photoelectrons or not? (c = 3 x 108 m/ s, 1eV = 1.6x10-19 J , h = 6.63 x 10-34 J.s.)

Solution

For incident radiation

E = hv

= `"h.c"/lambda = (6.6xx10^(-34)xx 3 xx 10^8)/(5000xx 10^(-10) xx 1.6xx10^(-19))` = 2.4 eV

Emisssion is not possible

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
