Question 1B.15 Part B
Posted: Mon Oct 22, 2018 12:39 am
In this question it states "no electrons are emitted from the surface of the metal until the frequency of the radiation reaches 2.50*10^16 Hz. How much energy is required to remove the electron from the metal surface?" We were also given velocity in this problem. I figured this question meant we would have to find the work function considering that's the energy required to remove an electron from the surface of a metal but the solution manual used E=hv. Would both methods be correct?
