1B.15 a

Postby Ayush Ray 1I » Sat Oct 19, 2019 3:10 pm

The velocity of an electron that is emitted from a
metallic surface by a photon is 3.63 x 10^3 km/s
(a) What is the wavelength of the ejected electron?

I'm confused because the solution manual says to use de Broglie's equation. However, there is no mass given in the question.

The mass of an electron is given in the back of the textbook in the "fundamental constants" section. I think we're expected to use that in any problems that involve electron mass in some way.

The mass would be that of an electron which is 9.1095*10^-31 kg.

The mass of an electron is something that is a given usually on the formula sheet with all the other constants and given equations so you should be ok.
