## Long Answer

**25** Consider a thin target ( square, thickness) of sodium, which produces a photocurrent of when a light of intensity falls on it. Find the probability that a photoelectron is produced when a photons strikes a sodium atom.

**Ans**:

- Na atoms weigh 23 kg.
- Volume of target
- Density of sodium
- Volume of Na atoms
- Volume occupied of 1 Na atom
- No. of sodium atoms in the target
- Number of photons/s in the beam for
- Energy per s
*nh*ν ∴

- If P is the probability of emission per atom, per photon, the number of photoelectrons emitted/second

Current

This must equal or

- Thus the probability of photoemission by a single photon on a single atom is very much less than 1. (That is why absorption of two photons by an atom is negligible) .

**26** Consider an electron in front of metallic surface at a distance *d* (treated as an infinite plane surface) . Assume the force of attraction by the plate is given as

Calculate work in taking the charge to an infinite distance from the plate. Taking , find the work done in electron volts. .

Ans:

Work done by an external agency

With , energy
