Question

The threshold wavelength for photoelectric emission from a material is 5200 Å. photoelectrons will be emitted when this material is illuminated with monochromatic radiation from a

Solution

Correct option is

5-watt ultraviolet lamp

Photoelectrons will be emitted if the wavelength if light is less than the threshold wavelength 5200 Å. Wavelength of sodium light is about 6000 Å, that of red light is about 8000 Å and that of infrared light is about 10,000 Å. But the wavelength of ultraviolet light is less than 2000 Å.
