Textbook Problem

If you pick up and shake a piece of metal that has electrons in it free to move as a current, no electrons fall out. Yet if you heat the metal, electrons can be boiled off. Explain both of these facts as they relate to the amount and distribution of energy involved with shaking the object as compared with heating it.

To determine

The amount and distribution of energy involved while shaking and heating the object.

Explanation

Introduction:

Metal are that material which can pass electricity through them. They produce lose electron for the current conduction within them. Also, the binding energy of metal are low.

On shaking, the electron in metal will get some energy but the energy is not greater than the work function. As due to shaking of metal nucleus also get effected...
