17. The energy of an incident photon is E = hf = hc / λ , where h is the Planck constant, f is the frequency of the electromagnetic radiation, and λ is its wavelength. The kinetic energy of the most energetic electron emitted is K m = E – Φ = ( hc / λ ) – Φ , where Φ is the work function for sodium. The stopping potential
