The cathode of a photoelectric cell is changedsuch that the work function changes from W_{1} toW_{2} (W_{2} > W_{1}). If the current before and afterchanges are I_{1} and I_{2}, all other conditionsremaining unchanged, then (assuming hν > W_{2})[1992]
The work function has no effect on
photoelectric current so long as hv > W_{0}.
The photoelectric current is proportional to
the intensity of incident light. Since there is
no change in the intensity of light, hence I^{1}
= I_{2}.
An ionization chamber with parallel conductingplates as anode and cathode has 5 × 10^{7} electronsand the same number of singly charged positiveions per cm3.

Kinetic energy of an electron, which isaccelerated in a potential difference of 100 V is[1995]
Potential difference (V) = 100 V. The kinetic
energy of an electron = 1 eV = 1 × (1.6 × 10^{–19})
= 1.6 × 10^{–19} J. Therefore kinetic energy in
100 volts = (1.6 × 10^{–19}) × 100 = 1.6 × 10^{–17}J.

Kinetic energy of electron accelerated

Which of the following statement is correct? [1997]
According to photoelectric effect, speed of
electron (kinetic energy) emitted depends
upon frequency of incident light while
number of photoelectrons emitted depends
upon intensity of incident light. Hence, as
the intensity of light increases, the
photocurrent increases. In a photocell, the
photocurrent has no relation with the applied
voltage.
Stopping potential is the (negative) potential
at which the current is just reduced to zero.
It is independent of intensity of light but
depends on the frequency of light similar to
K.E.
Cosmic rays are [1997]
Cosmic rays have low wavelength and high

We know that the Xrays are of short
wavelength as compared to grating constant
of optical grating. As a result of this, it makes
difficult to observe Xrays diffraction with
ordinary grating.

=0.58eV
As the intensity of incident light increases [1999]
K.E. of electrons emitted depends upon the
frequency of incident rays rather than the
intensity. While number of photo electrons
emitted depends upon intensity of radiation.
