FOR MARKERS’ USEONLY
Marks Photoelectrons are emitted from
with non-zero (or enough) kinetic energies / speedsand thus they can reach the anode.Current is from
(or to the right) within the photocell.1A1A2(i)Those/somephotoelectrons with kinetic energies less than
/ potential barrier do not have enough energy to overcome the potential barrier in order to reach anode
,hence the current drops.Or Those photoelectrons emitted with speeds less than
could not overcome the attraction towards
, hence the current drops.1A1A2(ii)1.5 (eV)
λ λ λ
Ultraviolet (UV)1A1M1A1A4(i)2A2(ii)We would expect photoelectrons to be ejected with greater speeds/K.E./K.E.
when theradiation intensity increases, but this is not so as the stopping potential and thus K.E.
of the photoelectrons remain the same.Or According to the wave theory, the energy of light depends on its intensity,however, the stopping potential / K.E.
is independent of light intensity1A1A2

1.0+1.0+2.0+3.01M for same stopping potential.1M for saturation current doubled and curve of similar shape.Enough “energy”
1M for correct equation in terms of
or correctsub. of
.1 M for correct
, accept 3.27
m1 M for stating UV, mark independently and no penalty for spelling mistakesOvercome “voltae”
