immediately, time, faintest
Bright light ejects ____ electrons, but their ____ ___ depends on the __ of light, not the ____
more, ____, freq, speed
The quantum theory ___ to explain the photo electric effect
What's evidence for the wave nature of light ?
It reflects & obeys laws of reflection, light refracts, light diffracts around objects
when certain freq of light shine on a metal surface __ are ejected
W or P ? when light goes thru a single slit, it spreads out.
w or p ? when some colors of light shine on a metal plate, electrons are ejected.
w or p ? only cer. colors of light cause photosynthesis
w or p ? when light moves from air to water, it bends
w or p ? when light goes thru to narrow slits, a pattern of dark and bright regions shows on the screen.
wave , interference
w or p ? when gaseous atoms are bombarded with electricity , certain colors of light are produced
Whats uses for the photoelectric effect?
night lights, alarm systems, solar calculators
Who developed quantum theory ?
Who used quantum theory to explain photoelectric effect ?
formula for calculating energy of a photon of light ?
why does bright red light nvr produce p.e.e ?
because red light doesnt have enough energy to eject electrons when absorbed by atoms
Whats the quantum theory ?
energy is radiated and absorbed in tiny indivisible bundles, each packet i called a quantum, a quantum of light is called a photon, the energy of photon depends on freq, each electron can absorb single photon light
