Photoelectric effect experiment manual


Manual for photoelectric effect. The purpose of this exercise is to study the photoelectric effect, which changed the views on the wave nature of radiation confirming the concept of the quantum of light. The photoelectric effect consists in knocking out electrons from the metal surface by electromagnetic radiation falling on this surface. For the electron to leave the metal that attracts him, some energy has to be delivered to that electron.
