Question

# If a surface has work function of 3.00 eV, the longest wavelength of light which will cause the emission of electrons is

A
4.8×107m
B
5.99×107m
C
4.13×107m
D
6.84×107m

Solution

## The correct option is D $$4.13\times 10^{-7}m$$Here the threshold wavelength is the longest wavelength of light which will cause the emission of electrons. We know that work function, $$W=\dfrac{hc}{\lambda_0}$$or $$\lambda_0=\dfrac{hc}{W}=\dfrac{(6.62\times 10^{-34})\times (3\times 10^8)}{3\times 1.6\times 10^{-19}}=4.13\times 10^{-7} m$$PhysicsNCERTStandard XII
