Photovoltaic
is an applied technology for the utility of solar energy, which covers the conversion
of light into electricity using metal materials that exhibit the photoelectric effect.

The
photoelectric effect is a phenomenon that when an electron attains a proportional
energy from sunlight which exceeds the limitation of the energy barrier which
is hinged upon the material of metal plates, it can jump over the energy
barrier, get out of itself metal plate and reaches another metal plate, and
further produce current flows.

Now
let’s play with the simulation and research some interesting relationship
between two parameters.
in the animation you have two slides in the upper right corner. The first one
is about the intensity of the light and the other one shows the spectrum of the
light.
play with the simulation and answer the question below.

remember the mathematical relationship between the energy of light and the wavelength. E=c/w. the increase of the intensity of light increases the number of the emitted electrons.
