You use the equation Energy of a photon-work function=Kinetic Energy. Since it is asking for the maximum wavelength kinetic energy equals 0. The energy of the photon is then equal to the work function. The energy of the photon= 9.02 x 10^-19 J. Since the energy of the photon equals Planck's constant x frequency, you can then solve for the wavelength.
For this question you had to use the equation: (Energy photon - threshold energy = kinetic energy). The kinetic energy is 0 so you just do (hc)/wavelength = the given threshold energy. After plugging in variable, you can sold for wavelength which equals 2.20x10^-7 m. Hope this helped.
