Q: 9. A photon of wavelength the work function of the metal being Calculate

(i) The energy of the photon (eV)

(ii) The kinetic energy of the emission

(iii) The velocity of the photoelectron (1 eV=).

Answer:

(i) Energy (E) of a photon =

Where,

Wavelength of photon

Substituting the values in the given expression of E:

Hence, the energy of the photon is.

(ii) The kinetic energy of emission is given by

Hence, the kinetic energy of emission is 0.97 eV.

(iii) The velocity of a photoelectron () can be calculated by the expression,

Where, () is the kinetic energy of emission in joules and ‘m’ is the mass of the photoelectron. Substituting the value in the given expression of v:

Hence, the velocity of the photoelectron is
