The wavelength of photons in two cases are 4000 A and 3600 A respectively what is difference in stopping potential for these two? (Give solution using formula)

Dear student,

Stopping potential for an incoming photon is equal to the energy of it per unit charge.

Hence stopping potential of4000A^{\circ}photon is\dfrac{hc}{e\lambda}=3.1V


Hence stopping potential of3600A^{\circ} photon is\dfrac{hc}{e\lambda}=3.44V
Hence the required difference=0.34V

In 1st case : stopping potential=12400/4000=3.1ev.                                    In 2nd case : stopping potential=12400/3600=3.44ev                                   Difference=3.44- 2.06=0.34ev
