[J2 Physics PMCians] Get Stricken by the Photoelectric Effect!!
What we did in 2 hours:
We embarked on the new field of Quantum Physics, by looking at one of the key experiments that moved Physics from Classical Mechanics to the modern Quantum Physics – the Photoelectric experiment.
Did you know that the photoelectric effect is the foundation of one of our renewable sources of energy? If you guessed Solar Power, you’re right!! When light of sufficiently high frequency hits the solar cell, current is created!
