27 A student performs an experiment on photoelectric effect, using two materials A and B. A plot of is given in Fig …

Photoelectric Effect, 2 Materials a & B

(i) Which material A or B has a higher work function?

(ii) Given the electric charge of an electron , find the value of h obtained from the experiment for both A and B. Comment on whether it is consistent with Einstein՚s theory:


  • Stopping potential at a higher frequency for B. Hence it has a higher work function.
  1. Slope

Since h works out differently, experiment is not consistent with the theory.

28 A particle A with a mass is moving with a velocity v and hits a particle at rest (one dimensional motion) . Find the change in the de Broglic wavelength of the particle A. Treat the collision as elastic.
