Question

The photoelectric threshold for a certain metal surface is 330 Å. What is the maximum kinetic energy of photoelectron released, if any, by a radiation of wavelength 1100 Å ? 

Solution

Correct option is

No electron is emitted

Wavelength of incident radiation is . Therefore, frequency of incident radiation is 

          

             

             

Threshold wavelength is . Therefore, threshold frequency is  

              

             

             .

Since v < v0, no photoelectron is emitted.
