Sample Text:
The lamps produce light when an electric current is passed through sodium vapour. Almost all the light from these lamps has a wavelength of 5.89 × 10–7 m. (a) Calculate the energy for a photon of light emitted from a sodium lamp. (b) The work function for sodium is 2.28 eV. Calculate the threshold frequency for the emission of photoelectrons from the surface of sodium metal, and hence the maximum wavelength of light that can cause photoemission. (c) Show that light from a sodium lamp cannot cause photoemission of electrons from sodium metal. By considering the energy transitions involved in light production and absorption, suggest a possible reason for this. ATOMS AND PHOTONS (2011;2) (a) State what a photon is, and describe how it can be produced by electrons within an atom. (b) X-rays are used to take photograph...
