Homework Statement



Could violet light ejecto photons from a metal by compton scattering?

Homework Equations


no


The Attempt at a Solution


If a photon of violet light is backscattered 180, the electron gain most energy(6.03*10^(-24)J).
While the work function is aby a few eVs, but as calculated the electron gain energy is not enough to eject electrons.

However the question is asking abt PHOTONS, while elctrons cannot be ejected, can i be excited and eject photons???

thx!
