Light as a particle A) the photoelectric effect B) photon momentum II. Matter as a wave III. The Schrödinger equation I. LIGHT AS A PARTICLE A) The Photoelectric Effect (continued from Lecture #3) The energy of an incoming photon (E i ) must be equal to or greater than the workfunction ( ) of the metal in order to eject an electron. e- __________ ejected e- __________ ejected e- __________ ejected Three photons, each with an energy equal to /2 will NOT eject an electron! 1

The # of electrons ejected from the surface of a metal is proportional to the ______________ of photons absorbed by the metal (assuming E i ), and not the energy of the photons. Thus, the intensity (I) of the light (energy/sec) is proportional to the # of photons ejected/sec. High intensity means more __________________ and NOT more _________________. Unit of intensity (I) : W = ___________ Terminology tips to help solve problems involving photons and electrons: photons: also called light, electromagnetic radiation, etc. o
