Stopping potential:

Vo= 0.800 V

Example 4:The threshold frequency for a given surface is 1.09 x 1015 Hz. What is the stopping potential for incident light whose photon energy is 8.48 x 10-19 J?

Photoelectric Equation:

W = (6.63 x 10-34 Js)(1.09 x 1015 Hz) =7.20 x 10-19 J

Total Relativistic Energy

Recall that the formula for the relativistic total energy was given by:

For a particle with zero momentum p= 0:

E =moc2

A light photon has mo= 0, but it does have momentum p:

E =pc

de Broglie Wavelength:

Waves and Particles

We know that light behaves as both a wave and a particle. The rest mass of a photon is zero, and its wavelength can be found from momentum.

All objects, not just EM waves, have wavelengths which can be found from their momentum

Finding Momentum from K.E.

In working with particles of momentum p = mv, it is often necessary to find the momentum from the given kinetic energy K. Recall the formulas:

K = ½mv2 ; p = mv

Multiply first Equation by m:

mK =½m2v2= ½p2

90 eV

Example 5:What is the de Broglie wavelength of a 90-eV electron? (me = 9.1 x 10-31 kg.)

Next, we find momentum from the kinetic energy:

p = 5.12x 10-24 kg m/s

l = 0.122 nm

E = hf (h = 6.626 x 10-34 J s)

Photon

1 eV = 1.60 x 10-19 J

The Electron-volt:

E = hf

1 MeV = 1.6 x 10-13 J

1 keV = 1.6 x 10-16 J

Summary

Apparently, light consists of tiny bundles of energy called photons, each having a well-defined quantum of energy.
