Dear friends,
I was wondering what would be the necessary amout of energy to pull out the closest electron of an iron metal. I read that the energy required for the most distant electrons of the iron metal is about 9 thousand KJ/mol.

Thanks my sages@

For bulk iron?
That would be the work-function ... defining "closest" as the electrons with the least binding energy.

Exactly the same energies are involved in Auger effect.
