Expert Answer

Step 1

Given information:

Work function of lead = 6.81×10-19 J

Wavelength of light = 38.5 nm

Step 2

When light is radiated on a metal surface then there is an ejection of electrons with the release of some amount of energy. The expression for the photoelectric effect is represented as follows:

Step 3

The frequency can be expressed in terms of speed of light (c) and wavelength of light. Therefore, the energy of ejected electrons can be calculated as follows:
