# Photoelectric Effect: Energy of photoelectrons emitted.

Not what you're looking for?

Light from a laser hits the surface of cesium. With a minimum photon energy of 2.14eV being required to remove photons. When the surface of cesium is illuminated with this light photoelectrons are emitted with a max kinetic energy of 0.76eV. Assuming that the Planck constant is 4.14x10^-15 eV Hz-1.

What would be the energy of the photons comprising the beam of light from the laser?

What color would the laser be?

##### Solution Summary

The energy of photons of the incident laser beam is calculated when the kinetic energy of the emitted photoelectrons is given.
