(a) Draw a graph showing the variation of photoelectric current with collector plate potential for two different frequencies (v_{1}>v_{2}) of the incident radiation.

(a)

(b) Einstein photoelectric equation is given by;

K_{max}= h \nu-\phi _{0}

where

h - Plank's constant 

\nu - Frequency of light

\phi _{0} - work function

K_{max} - maximum kinetic energy

Features of photoelectric effect which cannot be explained by the wave theory of light.

(i) The kinetic energy of emitted electrons is found to be independent of the intensity of incident light.

(ii) The electrons are emitted only at a particular frequency called threshold frequency. Below that frequency, no photoemission takes place.
