Work Function

Postby Rose_Malki_3L » Tue Oct 27, 2020 1:15 pm

If the work function is given to us in kJ/mol, do we need to convert it to J/photon (so we would need to multiple the work function by 1000 to go from kJ to J and then divide by Avogadro's number to change from per mol to per photon)?

Yes, I belive if you're using it in relation to Ke and Ephoton, you would need to convert the work function to J/electron.
Hope this helped!

Yes you're correct. It's easier if you take notice of what units you need to get your answer.
