Problem 2a - KE vs. Freq KE = 7E-34v - 4E-19 0 2E-19 4E-19 6E-19 8E-19 1E-18 1.2E-18 1.4E-18 1.6E-18 1.8E-18 0 5E+14 1E+15 1.5E+15 2E+15 2.5E+15 3E+15 3.5E+15 Freq (Hz) KE (J) 2b) 18 -19 -19 6.241506 10 Work function = 4 10 2.49 2 (to one sig fig) or if you carry more sig figs into the calculation: Work function = 3.59 10 2.24 2 (to one sig fig - same as above) This is eV Je V e V J V e V × ×× = = ×= = not the same as the ionization potential for Na, nor should it be. The work function represents the minimum energy of radiation to remove an electron from the surface of a solid block of Na. The ionization potential represents the energy required to remove an electron from a gaseous Na atom.
