Video module Test

Postby derinceltik1K » Sat Oct 19, 2019 4:41 pm

If 3.607 x 10-19 J is required to remove an electron with zero kinetic energy from a metal surface, what would be the longest wavelength light that could do this?

How would we be able to use the J with the equations?

If there is no kinetic energy, then the energy required to remove an electron from the metal is equal to the energy of the photon beam being directed at the metal. from there you use the equation E=hv to find the frequency, then c= (wavelength)(frequency) to find the greatest wavelength of light that can remove electrons from the metal.

to find the longest wavelength first you would have to find the frequency of the wave. You get that through E=hv. where v= E/h. Then you would plug v into the equation c=(wavelength)(v) and then solve for wavelength.

Or, you could use the combined equations of E=hv and c=v(wavelength) to get (wavelength)=hc/E and solve for wavelength!
Hope that helps :)
