Question 2

The work function of caesium metal is 2.14 eV. When light of frequency 6 ×10^{14} Hz is incident on the metal surface, photoemission of electrons occurs. What is the

(a) maximum kinetic energy of the emitted electrons,

(b) Stopping potential, and

(c) maximum speed of the emitted photoelectrons?

Answer

Work function of caesium metal, ø_{0} = 2.14 eV

Frequency of light, v = 6.0 x 10^{14} Hz

**(a)** The maximum kinetic energy is given by the photoelectric effect as: K = hv - ø_{0}

Where,

h = Planck’s constant = 6.626 × 10^{−34} Js

∴ K = 6.626 x 10^{34} x 6 x 10^{14} / 1.6 x 10^{-19} - 2.14 = 2.485 - 2.14 = 0.345 eV

*Hence, the maximum kinetic energy of the emitted electrons is 0.345 eV.*

**( b )** For stopping potential , V_{0} we can write the equation for kinetic energy as: K = eV_{0}

∴ V_{0} = K/e = 0.345 x 1.6 x 10^{-19} / 1.6 x 10^{-19} = 0.345 V

*Hence, the stopping potential of the material is 0.345 V. *

**(c)** Maximum speed of the emitted photoelectrons = v

Hence, the relation for kinetic energy can be written as:* K = 1/2 mv ^{2}*

Where,

m = Mass of an electron = 9.1 × 10^{−31} kg

v^{2} = 2K/m = 2 x 0.345 x 1.6 x 10^{-19} / 9.1 x 10^{-31} = 0.1104 x 10^{12}

∴ v = 3.323 x 10^{5} m/s = 332.3 km/s

*Hence, the maximum speed of the emitted photoelectrons is 332.3 km/s.*
