PHYS-1200 PHYSICS II SPRING 2005 Post Quiz 21 Name___________ ANSWERS _________________ 1. In a certain photoelectric effect experiment, the energy absorbed by an individual electron is 3.10 eV. The maximum kinetic energy of the emitted electrons for the material used was found to be 1.98 eV. What is the work function for this material? hf = K max + Φ , so Φ = hf – K max = 3.10 eV – 1.98 eV Φ = 1.12 eV units 2. Does the energy absorbed by individual electrons when light strikes a surface depend on the intensity of the light? (Circle the correct choice.) Yes, linearly Yes, inversely Yes, in some manner other than linearly or inversely
