Fall, 2007 EXAM II Thursday, 8 Nov 2007 WRITE your Name M Student Number Recitation Time: Monday There are 7 questions on this exam, worth 15 points each.
Write your answer, showing all work to each on each page.
A list of potentially useful equations is on pages 9 and 10. A periodic table is c0ntained on page 11. 1. One of the most light detectors uses an alloy that has the very low
work function of 2.40x10‘19 J (1.5 eV), a value that is lower than that
of any single element. (a) Calculate the value of the lowest frequency of light that will eject
a photoelectron from this surface. (5 points) l\\)’= a) KEz¢ (a. —9 .—. (fl/k ___ v; 5.01. $‘¢l4—/A. (all? (b) Calculate the wavelength of the electrons that are emitted from

ﬁrst ionization potentials of the elements in the p—group of the
top row of the periodic table increase with atomic number, except
that the ﬁrst ionization potential of a free oxygen atom is less than
the ﬁrst ionization potential of a free nitrogen atom. (10 points) ¥p val 2»?— 2p; 80 pého caika (QM M '
