Photoelectric Photoelectric Effect Classical theory said that kinetic energy of ejected electron should increase with increase in light intensity—not observed! No e - observed until light of a certain minimum frequency (energy) is used. Velocity of ejected electrons increases with frequency A. Einstein (1879-1955) E = h ν
