Photoelectric Effect Binding Energy - energy holding an electron to a metal. Threshold frequency, ν o - minimum frequency of light needed to emit an electron. For frequencies below the threshold frequency, no electrons are emitted. For frequencies above the threshold frequency, extra energy is imparted to the electrons as kinetic energy. E photon = Binding Energy + Kinetic
