Question 1.
Find the

1. Maximum frequency, and
2. Minimum wavelength of X-rays produced by 30 kV electrons.

Given Vo = 30 kV = 30 × 103 V
vmax = ?
λmax = ?
1. Since kmax = eVo
So hvmax = eVo
or = 7.24 × 1018 Hz

2. = 0.041 × 10-9
or λmin = 0.041 nm. Question 2.
The work function of caesium metal is 2.14 eV. When light of frequency 6 × 1014Hz is incident on the metal surface, photoemission of electrons occurs. What is the

1. maximum kinetic energy of the emitted electrons,
2. maximum speed of the emitted photoelectrons?

Given W0 = 2.14 eV
= 2.14 × 1.6 × 10-19 J
= 3.424 × 10-19J
v = 6 × 1014 Hz

1. Kmax = hv – W0
= 6.62 × 10-34 × 6 × 1014 – 3.424 × 1019
= 3.972 × 10-19 – 3.424 × 10-19
= 0.54 × 10-19 J.

2. Since eV0 =kmax or v0 = 0.34 V
Since $$\frac{1}{2}$$ mV2max = Kmax or vmax = 0.344 × 106 ms-1 = 344 kms-1 Question 3.
The photoelectronic cut-off voltage in a certain experiment is 1.5 V. What is the maximum kinetic energy of photoelectrons emitted?
Given V0 = 1.5 V
Since kmax = eV0
= 1.5 eV
= 1.5 × 1.6 × 10-19 J = 2.4 × 10-19 J.

Question 4.
In an experiment on photoelectric effect, the slope of the cutoff voltage versus frequency of incident light is found to be 4.12 × 10-15Vs. Calculate the value of Planck’s constant.
Given, slope of graph = 4.12 × 10-15 Vs
since, slope of graph = $$\frac{h}{e}$$
∴ h = e × slope of graph
= 1.6 × 10-19 × 4.12 × 10-15 = 6.59 × 10-34 Js. Question 5.
The threshold frequency fora certain metal is 3.3 × 1014 Hz. If light of frequency 8.2 × 1014 Hz is incident on the metal, predict the cutoff voltage for the photoelectric emission.
Given v0 = 3.3 × 1014Hz
v = 8.2 × 1014Hz
Since eV0 = hv – hv0
So V0 = $$\frac{h}{e}$$ (v – v0)
$$=\frac{6.62 \times 10^{-34}}{1.6 \times 10^{-19}}$$ × (8.2 × 1014 – 3.3 × 1014)
= 4.14 × 10-15 × 4.9 × 1014
= 2.02 V = 2.0 V

Question 6.
Light of frequency 7.21 × 1014Hz is incident on a metal surface. Electrons with a maximum speed of 6.0 × 105m/s are ejected from the surface. What is the threshold frequency for photoemission of electrons?
Given v = 7.21 × 1014Hz
umax = 6.0 × 1014ms-1
v0 = ?
Since Kmax = hv – hv0
∴ v0 = v – Kmax ### Plus Two Physics Dual Nature of Radiation and Matter One Mark Questions and Answers

3. An electron and a proton have same kinetic . energy which of these particles has shortest de-Broglie wave length? (2)

1. Davisson and Germer experiment.

2. Aim:
To confirm the wave nature of electron.
Experimental setup:
The Davisson and Germer Experiment consists of filament ‘F’, which is connected to a low tension battery. The Anode Plate (A) is used to accelerate the beam of electrons. A high voltage is applied in between A and C. ’N’ is a nickel crystal. D is an electron detector. It can be rotated on a circular scale. Detector produces current according to the intensity of incident beam.

Working:
The electron beam is produced by passing current through filament F. The electron beam is accelerated by applying a voltage in between A (anode) and C. The accelerated electron beam is made to fall on the nickel crystal.

The nickel crystal scatters the electron beam to different angles The crystal is fixed at an angle of Φ = 50° to the incident beam. The detector current for different values of the accelerating potential ‘V’ is measured. A graph between detector current and voltage (accelerating) is plotted. The shape of the graph is shown in figure. Analysis of graph: The graph shows that the detector current increases with accelerating voltage and attains maximum value at 54V and then decreases. The maximum value of current at 54 V is due to the constructive interference of scattered waves from nickel crystal (from different planes of crystal). Thus wave nature of electron is established.

Experimental wavelength of electron:
The wave length of the electron can be found from the formula
2d sinθ = n λ ………..(1)
From the figure, we get
θ + Φ + θ = 180°
2θ = 180 – Φ, 2θ = 180 – 50°
θ = 65°
for n = 1
equation (1) becomes
λ = 2d sinθ ………(2)
for Ni crystal, d = 0.91 A°
Substituting this in eq. (2), we get
wavelength λ = 1.65 A° Theoretical wave length of electron:
The accelerating voltage is 54 V
Energy of electron E = 54 × 1.6 × 10-19J
∴ Momentum of electron P = $$\sqrt{2 \mathrm{mE}}$$
P = $$\sqrt{2 \times 9.1 \times 10^{-31} \times 54 \times 1.6 \times 10^{-19}}$$
= 39.65 × 10-25 Kg ms-1
∴ De- Broglie wavelength λ = $$\frac{h}{P}$$ The experimentally measured wavelength is found in agreement with de-Broglie wave length. Thus wave nature of electron is confirmed.

3. Mass of alpha particle is more than that of proton, hence it has shortest wavelength. Question 10.
