# Monochromatic rad

Answer :

Given:

Wavelength of light, λ = 640.2 nm = 640.2 × 10-9m

Stopping potential, V0 = 0.54 V

Let frequency of light = v

Work function, Φ0 is given by,

Φ0 = hv-eVs

Φ0 = …(1)

Where,

h = Planck’s constant = 6.6 × 10-34Js

c = speed of light = 3 × 108m

λ = wavelength of light

e = charge on each electron = 1.6 × 10-19C

Φ0 = Φ0 = 2.229 × 10-19J or 1.39 eV

Wavelength of radiation emitted by iron, λ’ = 427.2 nm

λ’ = 4.27.2 × 10-9m

The new stopping potential can be found using equation (1),

Let new stopping potential = v’

By putting the values in equation (1) we get,

Φ0 =   v’ = 1.5 eV

Therefore, the new stopping potential is 1.5 eV.
