Intensity — Photoelectric Effect

Postby Tarika Gujral 1K » Sat Oct 13, 2018 9:56 pm

Is there a way of mathematically calculating intensity/amplitude via the photoelectric effect equation:
KE electron = Energy of photon - Threshold energy?

There is not a way to calculate intensity/ amplitude using that formula as far as I am aware.

If you were looking for a formula to find intensity you may want to use this one: light intensity is proportional to 1/ distance squared
(distance being in meters from light source)

Also, the relationship between intensity and amplitude is that intensity is proportional to amplitude squared.
