A graphic representing the photoelectric equation. The diagram shows a photon incident on a metallic surface, the work function of the material and the subsequent maximum kinetic energy of the photoelectron.

This resource is from the unit Explaining the Photoelectric Effect which is part of Absorb Advanced Physics.
