### Work Function

How do I calculate the frequency of a photon given the frequency and value for the work function?

### Re: Work Function

If you mean given the value of the work function, you would use the equation hf=work function+ Ek. Ek= 1/2mv^2. and solve for f after plugging in the given values.
