Lecture 14: Waves & Particles 1800s light is a wave Maxwell light is an EM wave I. Photoelectric Effect a. classically – if you increase A (increase I) you see a increase in frequency of electrons b. experimentally this was not true c. If f < f t no electrons ejected, regardless of I d. If f > f t electrons are ejected, number per second grows with intensity, max kinetic energy grows with frequency e. 1905 Einstein light is composed of particles photons Energy of Photons: E ph = hf f. To eject electrons: need E ph > E binding where E binding is the work function E ph > φ electrons are ejected i. Threshhold: E ph = φ hf t = φ f t = φ/h g. K max leftover energy if f > f t K max E ph – φ = hf – φ h. Intensity = power/area Power = energy/time i. Intensity number of photons per second per meter squared 1. Frequency  Energy 2. Intensity  Number per second i. Concept test – Power = 5 for two lasers. One wavelength is 633nm and the other is 840 nm. Which laser emits more photons?

    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.

    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.

    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.
