Photoelectric Effect Electrons are ejected from a sample when light hits the sample surface. The light must be above a certain “threshold” frequency ( ν o ). • Threshold Frequency ( ν o ): The minimum frequency that provides enough energy to remove an electron. Work function (w): The energy required to remove an electron. w=h ν o The kinetic energy of the emitted electrons is

The work function of chromium (Cr) is 7.00x10 -19 J. What is the longest wavelength of light that will result in the release of electrons, when shone on chromium? What is the kinetic energy (in joules) of the
