he theory of the photoelectric effect must explain the experimental observations of the emission of electrons from an illuminated metal surface. For a given metal, there exists a certain minimum frequency of incident radiation below which no photoelectrons are emitted. This frequency is called the threshold frequency.

When Photons hit an Metal Surface with a certain minimum Frequency,(Called The Thershold Frequency), Electrons Are Ejected. This Effect is Called Photoelectric Effect.
