The discontinuity in the curve would be present at Al+ , Al3+ , Al6+ (All these are stabilised states due to completely or half filled atomic subshells). Al3+ is the greatly stabilised due to noble gas configuration. A+ sue to half filled s subshell and Al6+ due to half filled p subshell.


Other than this thse discontinuities, the ionization enthalpies would increase with oxn state as effective nuclear chrge would increase.

did average energy depends upon the intensity of the incident light?
 
 
no it doesn''t,only threshold frequency and KE

No,it does not depend upon intensity of incident light.it always depends upon the threshold frequency and kinetic energy.
