Common Misconception in Photoelectric Effect Experiments
This is part of the HSC Physics course under the topic Light: Quantum Model.
HSC Physics Syllabus
- investigate the evidence from photoelectric effect investigations that demonstrate inconsistency with the wave model of light (ACSPH087, ACSPH123, ACSPH137)
- analyse the photoelectric effect Kmax = hf – φ as it occurs in metallic elements by applying the Law of Conservation of Energy and the photon model of light.
Relationship Between Photocurrent and Frequency
This video explains why as the frequency of light varies (with constant intensity), the magnitude of photocurrent does not remain constant.
