Physics EA: Photoelectric Effect No Empirical Confirmation for the Existence of a Photon That Carries Energy Packet E = hf

Johann Marinsek
Year: 2008
Keywords: Photoelectric Effect

Photoelectric Effect indicates that release of metallic electrons is not due to a collision photon vs. electron but that it is essentially a frequency dependent resonance effect, which is explicable only in terms of wave theory. There is no inference possible from the stopping potential V (that represents a potential energy) to the kinetic energy of photons, i. e. there is no measurement of a photon energy E = hf possible.
