Different metals showed different behav- iors. 2. Light intensity and electron current were related. reyes (mr29667) Sample Exam One Shear (52375) 2 3. The effect is not observed when a gas is introduced into the vacuum chamber. 4. Radiation below a certain frequency, no matter how intense, would not cause electron emission. correct 5. All metals are reflective. Explanation: When electromagnetic radiation (light) of sufficient minimum energy strikes a metal cathode, electrons are knocked off its sur- face, travel to an anode, and form a current through a circuit. Two important observations were: 1) Electrons can be ejected only if the light is sufficiently energetic. Electron ejection is independent of time or intensity. The mini- mum energy varies by element. 2) The current increases with increasing intensity and is independent of color. Therefore, light is made up of photons, each having a particular amount of energy that can be transferred to an electron during a colli- sion. If the energy is equal to or greater than the amount needed to liberate the electron, it can escape to join the photoelectric current....
