    Pb.16 Consider the metals lithium, beryllium, and mercury, which have work functions of 2.3 eV, 3.9 eV, and 4.5 eV, respectively. If light of wavelength 300 nm is incident on each of these metals, determine (a) which metal exhibits the photoelectric effect and (b) the maximum kinetic energy for the photoelectron in each case.

    A. 16 The metals which exhibit the photoelectric effect are those for which the maximum kinetic energy of the ejected electrons is positive. Namely

    Pb. 20. Figure P2.20 shows the stopping potential versus incident photon frequency for the photoelectric effect for sodium. Use these data points to find (a) the work function, (b) the ratio, and (c) the cutoff wavelength. (d) Find the percent difference between your h/e

    answer to (b) and the accepted value.

    A 20 (a) The work function should be found using the graph by extrapolating the linear curve back to zero frequency. At this point we have. Knowing the electronic V/es
