reaches 2.50 X 1016 Hz.
How much energy is required to remove the electron from the metal surface? (6pt)

(16pt) The photon needs to contain enough energy to eject the electron from the surface as well as to
cause it to move at 3.6 X 103 km ~s'1. The energy involved is the kinetic energy of the electron, which equals %mv2. E =1.66><10"7 J +lmv2 hoton
