the Planck distribution peak? In what part of the electromagnetic spectrum is thiswavelength?Solution
Wien’s displacement law state
maximum value of the wavelength of radiation from anobject:This wavelength is in the microwave part of the spectrum.4.
A clean nickel surface is exposed to light of wavelength of 235nm. What is themaximum speed of the photoelectrons emitted from this surface. The work functionfor nickel is .SolutionUsing the relation5.
The threshold of dark-adapted (scotopic) vision is at acentralwavelength of 500 nm. If light with this intensity and wavelength enters the eye whenthe pupil is open to its maximum diameter of 8.5 mm, how many photons per secondenter theeye?Solution:Scotopic is means; energy of the radiation per second per meter square.We can calculate area of pupil and then power of the light entering the eye.Power of the light entering the eye:This is the energy of the light entering to the ey eper second. We calculate energy of eachphoton:Number of photon per second:6.
A beam of 0.68-nm photons undergoes Compton scattering from free electrons. What
are the energy and momentum of the photons that emerge at a 45° angle with respect
to the incident beam?Solution :Using the Compton shift formula, then we can writeTherefore the energy of the photon isMomentum of the photon is:7.
Calculate the de Broglie wavelength for an electron that has kinetic energy (a) 50.0 eVand (b) 50.0 keV (ignore relativistic effects).
