Photoelectric emi

Answer :

In photoelectric effect, the energy of the incident photon must be equal to the sum of the metal's work function and the photoelectron kinetic energy:


E (photon)=KE (electron)+Φ


Where, E is total energy of incident light, KE is the kinetic energy of the photon and Φ is work function.


So, the physical quantity is work function of surface.
