## question 3

I have been working on three for a while as well i cant figure it out does anyone know how to solve it? please help!!!!!

## question #1

the first equation f=c/lamda, i don't get why we have to do that if we r not using it...and i don't understand how you got to joules because if you multiplied the values to get E, 4.569e-19Js isn't the answer, so i dont really get it at all.

## Question 3

The equation that is on sheet 7 reads

KEmax=e*Vs

we known that e is 1.6e-19 and we are given the stopping voltage(for me) is 6.437 hundred volts.

Since we are asked for the answer in eV and KEmax is normally in joules we can just cancel out the "e" term which is basically like a conversion factor and we just get KEmax=Vs

So to convert to just volts move the decimal place two spots over on the given number

e.g. 643.7 and that is your answer.

The answer is neg.

## Maple TA 25_1

A photon has a wavelength of 5.131 x10-7m. What is its energy in eV (sheet 4) ? Indicate with a positive (negative) sign whether the photon energy increases (decreases) with increasing wavelength.

= (3E8)/(5.131E-7)

= 5.84681E14

THEN

=(5.84681E14)*(6.63E-34)

=(3.87644E-19)

THEN

=(3.87644E-19)/(1.6E-19)

=2.42277(NEGATIVE)

The reasoning (step by step):

1. Speed of light divided by the wavelength to get the frequency, and then multiply by "h" which is 6.63E-34 to get the amount of energy in terms of Joules, and then divide by 1.6E-19 in order to convert to eV.

= (3E8)/(5.131E-7)

= 5.84681E14

THEN

=(5.84681E14)*(6.63E-34)

=(3.87644E-19)

THEN

=(3.87644E-19)/(1.6E-19)

=2.42277(NEGATIVE)

2. A "blackbody" (ideal emissivity - not essential here) emits an electromagnetic spectrum which has its maximum intensity at a wavelength of 587.1 nm. What is the temperature of the backbody in 0C (sheet 4') ? Indicate with a positive (negative) sign whether when heating up a piece of metal and observing the colors of the emitted light the blue (red) light appears first.

= (-2.9E-3)/(587.1E-9)

= -4939.53KELVIN

THEN

=(-4939.53)+(273)

= -4666.53CELSIUS

Reasoning:

The division step gets the temperature in terms of degrees kelvin, but the questions asks for the answer in celsius, so you need to add 273 to that number to get degrees celsius.

= (-2.9E-3)/(587.1E-9)

=(-4939.53)+(273)

I'm having some problems in understanding the concept behind question # 3. If someone could help me understand the rationale behind # 3 please.

## question 4

I have been working on question four but i cant quite figure it out has anyone figured out how to solve this problem yet??????????

4. Ok so number 4 is pretty straight forward, it's a simple step that you might have forgotten. So here's the deal:

4. The "workfunction" of a metal emitting electrons via the photoelectric effect is 1.817 eV. What is the threshold frequency i.e. the frequency below which no photoelectrons are emitted (sheet 9) ? Indicate with a positive (negative) sign whether for a certain metal an incident photon in the ultraviolet (infrared) is more likely to release an energetic electron.

= (6.63E-34)/(1.6E-19)

= (4.14375E-15)

THEN

=(1.817)/(4.14375E-15)

=(4.38492E14)

Reasoning: The reason you do the first step is to convert Planck's Constant from Joules into eV(electron-volts).

If someone can please explain the rationale behind question number 3 though, I would appreciate it.

Midterm 3? You must mean final.

It'll probably be like last semester: 2/3 new material and the remainder review from MT's 1/2.
