Answer :


The conduction if take place if the energy provided to the electron is more equal or more than the band gap.


Given:


Maximum wavelength at which the conduction starts


this wavelength provides minimum energy to the electron to move to conduction band,


Energy of this radiation=Energy band gap



energy band gap = 2.003eV 2eV
