Textbook Problem

What is the binding energy in eV of electrons in magnesium, if the longest-wavelength photon that can eject electrons is 337 nm?

To determine

The binding energy in eV of the electrons in magnesium.

Explanation

Given:

Frequency of photon =f

Wavelength of photon =λ=337 nm = 337×109 m

Speed of photon =c=3×108 ms

Energy of the photon =E=?

Plank's constant =h=4.14×1015 eV s

Formula Used:

Frequency of the photon is given as

  f=cλ

Binding energy of electrons is given as

  E=hf

Calculation:

Frequency of the photon is given as

  f=cx
