what are photons? photons are tiny packets of electromagnetic energy
what is photon energy? it is the planck's constant times frequency of light
what are quanta? This are discrete units of radiant energy that are emitted from hot objects
what is photoelectric effect? photoelectric effect is when electrons are emitted from the surface of a metal due to electromagnetic radiation hitting the metal
what is Einstein's Photoelectric Law? The energy of the fastest electron emitted is the difference between the energy of the photon and the work function of the metal
The photoelectric effect is principally associated with which? The absorption of x-ray
what is a photoelectron? it is an electron emitted as a result of the photoelectric effect
what is threshold frequency? threshold frequency is the frequency required to release an electron from the metal surface
what is work function? work function is the amount of energy required to release an electron from the metal surface
what is a quantum of light known as? a photon
what type of light is needed to release electrons from zinc? UV light
What is Einstein's photoelectric equation? hf = ∅ + EKmax
