Class – 12 Physics (Dual Nature of Radiation and Matter)

1. negative potential V0 given to the plate A for which the photocurrent stops or becomes zero
Explanation: The negative potential of the plate at which the photo electric current becomes zero is called stopping potential or cut-off potential. Its value is negative because some electron reach to the plate with their kinetic energy at zero potential.
1. scattered
Explanation: If photon strike with loosely bound electron then photoelectric effect takes place. Collision of photon with completely free electron give rise to Compton effect or Compton scattering.
1. {tex}1.7 \times 10 ^ { 11 } \mathrm { Ckg } ^ { – 1 }{/tex}
Explanation: Electric field provide required centripetal force for circular motion
{tex}eE = \frac{{m{v^2}}}{r}{/tex}
{tex}\frac{e}{m} = \frac{{{v^2}}}{{rE}} = \frac{{{{\left( {2.5 \times {{10}^7}} \right)}^2}}}{{2.3 \times 1.6 \times {{10}^3}}} = 1.7 \times {10^{11}}C\;K{g^{ – 1}}{/tex}
1. 3.3 {tex} \times {\rm{ 1}}{0^{ – {\rm{19}}}}{/tex} J
Explanation: {tex}{\phi _0} = {{hc} \over {{\lambda _0}}} = {{6.6 \times {{10}^{ – 34}} \times 3 \times {{10}^8}} \over {6 \times {{10}^{ – 7}}}} = 3.3 \times {10^{ – 19}}J{/tex}
1. ​​​​​​{tex}V _ { 0 } = \left( \frac { h } { e } \right) \nu – \frac { \phi _ { 0 } } { e }{/tex}
Explanation: {tex}e{V_0} = {K_{\max }}{/tex}
{tex}{K_{\max }} = h\nu – {\phi _0}{/tex}
{tex}e{V_0} = h\nu – {\phi _0}{/tex}
{tex}{V_0} = \left( {\frac{h}{e}} \right)\nu – \frac{{{\phi _0}}}{e}{/tex}
1. Photoelectric emission is not possible at all frequencies because below the threshold frequency for photosensitive surface of different atoms emission is not possible.
2. K.E. of photoelectron = hv – W
As given, W1 > W2
Since, W2 is lesser than W1 thus the kinetic energy of the emitted electrons for the photoelectric material having work function W2 will be greater.
3. Given, stopping potential, V = 1.5V
KEmax = eVo where, V0 = cut-off potential
KEmax = 1.5 eV
4. Given, v = 2.2 {tex} \times {/tex} 108 m/s
Here, m = 9.1 {tex} \times {/tex} 10-31 kg
h = 6.63 {tex} \times {/tex} 10-34 kg-m2-s
de-Broglie wavelength is given by
{tex}\lambda{/tex}= h/mv…………………………(i)
Substituting all values in Eq. (i), we get
{tex}\lambda = \frac { 6.63 \times 10 ^ { – 34 } } { 9.1 \times 10 ^ { – 31 } \times 2.2 \times 10 ^ { 8 } }{/tex}
{tex}\lambda = 3.31 \times 10 ^ { – 12 } \mathrm { m }{/tex}
5. Given,
P (power) = 100 W
{tex}\lambda = 589 \times {10^{ – 9}}m{/tex}

1. Energy of each photon
{tex}E = h\nu = \frac{{hc}}{\lambda } = \frac{{6.63 \times {{10}^{ – 34}} \times 3 \times {{10}^8}}}{{589 \times {{10}^{ – 9}}}}J{/tex}
{tex} \Rightarrow E = 3.38 \times {10^{ – 19}}J{/tex}
2. Number of photons delivered to sphere per second
P = nE
or {tex}n = \frac{{100}}{{3.38 \times {{10}^{ – 19}}}} = 3 \times {10^{20}}{/tex}photons/s
6. Given, maximum kinetic energy of photoelectron = 3eV
Therefore, Maximum KE = eV0
V0 = stopping potential
3eV= eV0
Hence, stopping potential
V0 = 3V
7. (b) Here, T = 27 + 273 = 300 K
Boltzmann’s constant, k {tex} = 1.38 \times {10^{ – 23}}J\;mo{l^{ – 1}}{K^{ – 1}}{/tex}
We know, average K.E. of neutron at absolute temperature T is given by {tex}E = \frac{3}{2}kT{/tex}. Where k is the Boltzmann’s constant.
Now, {tex}\lambda = \frac{h}{{\sqrt {2mE} }} = \frac{h}{{\sqrt {3mkT} }}{/tex}
{tex}\therefore \lambda = \frac{{6.63 \times {{10}^{ – 34}}}}{{\sqrt {3 \times 1.675 \times {{10}^{ – 27}} \times 1.38 \times {{10}^{ – 23}} \times 300} }} = 1.45 \times {10^{ – 10}}m{/tex}
Since this wavelength is comparable to interatomic spacing {tex}( \sim 1\mathop A\limits^o ){/tex} in a crystal, therefore, thermal neutrons are suitable probe for diffraction experiments: so a high energy neutron beam should be first thermalised before using it for diffraction.
8. Given,
Wavelength, {tex}\lambda = 632.8nm = 632.8 \times {10^{ – 9}}m{/tex}
Frequency, {tex}\nu = \frac{c}{\lambda } = \frac{{3 \times {{10}^8}}}{{632.8 \times {{10}^{ – 9}}}}Hz{/tex}
{tex} = 4.74 \times {10^{14}}Hz{/tex}

1. E = hv
{tex} = 6.63 \times {10^{ – 34}} \times 4.74 \times {10^{14}}J{/tex}
{tex} = 3.14 \times {10^{ – 19}}J{/tex}
p (momentum) {tex} = \frac{h}{\lambda } = \frac{{6.63 \times {{10}^{ – 34}}}}{{632.8 \times {{10}^{ – 9}}}} = 1.05 \times {10^{ – 27}}kg\;m{s^{ – 1}}{/tex}
2. Power emitted, P = 9.42 mW {tex} = 9.42 \times {10^{ – 3}}W{/tex}
P = nE
{tex}n = \frac{P}{E} = \frac{{9.42 \times {{10}^{ – 3}}W}}{{3.14 \times {{10}^{ – 19}}J}} = 3 \times {10^{16}}photons/\sec {/tex}
3. Velocity of hydrogen atom
{tex} = \frac{{Momentum\;’p’\;of\;{H_2}\;atom\;(mv)}}{{Mass\;of\;{H_2}\;atom\;(m)}}{/tex}
{tex} \Rightarrow v = \frac{{1.05 \times {{10}^{ – 27}}}}{{1.673 \times {{10}^{ – 27}}}}m{s^{ – 1}}{/tex} = 0.63ms-1
9. (i) Work function of Na is
{tex}{\phi _{Na}} = 1.92eV = 1.92 \times 1.6 \times {10^{ – 19}}J{/tex}
{tex}\lambda = 3300\mathop A\limits^o = 3300 \times {10^{ – 10}}m{/tex}
{tex}E = \frac{{hc}}{\lambda } = \frac{{6.6 \times {{10}^{ – 34}} \times 3 \times {{10}^8}}}{{3300 \times {{10}^{ – 10}}}}{/tex}
{tex}E = \frac{{6.6 \times 3 \times {{10}^{ – 34 + 8 + 10 – 2}}}}{{33 \times 10}}J{/tex}
{tex} = \frac{{6 \times {{10}^{ – 18 – 1}}}}{{1.6 \times {{10}^{ – 19}}}}J{/tex}
{tex} = \frac{{60}}{{16}}eV{/tex}
E = 3.75 eV
It is observed that energy of incident radiation is less than Ni and Mo but larger than Na and K. So photoemission current take place from Na and K but not from Mo and Ni. Therefore, Mo and Ni will not give photoelectric emission. If the laser is brought closer the intensity of radiation increases without any change in frequency. This therefore, will not affect the result. However, photoelectric current from Na and K will increase.
10. According to Einstein’s equation of photo electricity
{tex}\frac{1}{2}mv_{\max }^2 = e{V_0} = hv – {v_0}{/tex}
or {tex}e{V_0} = \frac{{hc}}{\lambda } – {\phi _0}{/tex}
where {tex}{\phi _0}{/tex} is the work function, {tex}\lambda{/tex} wavelength of incident light and V0 is the stopping potential.
For the first source,
{tex}{\lambda _1} = 4950\mathop {\text{A}}\limits^{\text{o}} = 4950 \times {10^{ – 10}}m{/tex}
V0 = 0.6 V
{tex}\therefore 1.6 \times {10^{ – 19}} \times 0.6{/tex} {tex} = \frac{{6.6 \times {{10}^{ – 34}} \times 3 \times {{10}^8}}}{{495 \times {{10}^{ – 9}}}} – {\phi _0}{/tex}
or {tex}0.96 \times {10^{ – 19}} = 4 \times {10^{ – 19}} – {\phi _0}{/tex}
{tex}\therefore {\phi _0} = 3.04 \times {10^{ – 19}}J{/tex} …..(i)
{tex} = \frac{{3.04 \times {{10}^{ – 19}}}}{{1.6 \times {{10}^{ – 19}}}}eV{/tex} = 1.9 eV
Let {tex}{\lambda _2}{/tex} be the wavelength of the second source.
Given, {tex}V_0′ = 1.1V{/tex}
Therefore,
{tex}1.6 \times {10^{ – 19}} \times 1.1{/tex} {tex} = \frac{{6.6 \times {{10}^{ – 34}} \times 3 \times {{10}^8}}}{{{\lambda _2}}} – 3.04 \times {10^{ – 19}}J{/tex}(from I)
or {tex}1.76 \times {10^{ – 19}}{/tex} {tex} = \frac{{19.8 \times {{10}^{ – 26}}}}{{{\lambda _2}}} – 3.04 \times {10^{ – 19}}{/tex}
or {tex}\frac{{19.8 \times {{10}^{ – 26}}}}{{{\lambda _2}}} = 4.8 \times {10^{ – 19}}{/tex}
{tex}\therefore {\lambda _2} = \frac{{19.8 \times {{10}^{ – 26}}}}{{4.8 \times {{10}^{ – 19}}}}m = 4.125 \times {10^{ – 7}}m{/tex} {tex}= 4125\mathop {\text{A}}\limits^{\text{o}}{/tex}
When the ejected photoelectrons are subjected to the action of a magnetic field no change in retarding potential will be observed. This is because a magnetic field does not alter the kinetic energy of the photoelectrons. The magnetic field only changes the direction of motion.
