Homework Statement


Hi!
I'm writing my lab report on the Franck-Hertz experiment and I have trouble with the contact potential difference (inelastic collision). How do you calculate it?

The Attempt at a Solution


The energy differences between the maximum and minimum peaks lies around 4.9 eV (4.9 +/- 0.5 eV approx.) , which is the "correct" value. When it comes to the contact potential difference, I guess that I can calculate it by calculating the average between two peaks and then subtract it from the first peak? But I'm not sure.
