Unformatted text preview: U = energy density ∝ U A2 For mechanical waves An historical experiment measured KE of electrons emitted from Na metal due to light. The light’s intensity and frequency was varied (Einstein’s Photoelectric Effect experiment). A relationship existed between the energy of the electrons and the frequency of the light, but there was no relationship between the intensity of the light and the energy of the electrons. There is a minimum frequency below which no electrons will be emitted, regardless of intensity. v = frequency λ = wavelength ∝ E v = = E hv hcλ T = period = → = Kλ 2π λ 2πK = → = ωT 2π T 2πω Increasing intensity increased the electric current in the detector (amount of electrons being detected), but it didn’t change the energy of the emitted electrons. The minimum amount of energy needed to knock an electron off is called the work function....

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

Kiran Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
