    1) The AMANDA 677 photon multiplier tubes embedded within the polar ice sheet to depths of over 2km. These tubes use the photoelectric effect to detect light. The metallic light-receiving surface within each tube is sensitive to light of wavelengths shorter than 605 x 10^2nm. The corresponding photon energy represents the minimum energy to eject a photoelectron. What is the minimum photon energy in electron volts? State the kinetic energy of the photoelectron.
