I want to use the equation: PHI=hc/lambda-Ve, where V is the stopping voltage (sorrry I don't know how to do the Greek letters for PHI and lambda).

My question: is Ve just 2.92 or is V 2.92 and e 1.602*10^-19? I have tried both ways, adjusting h as required, and I get two different answers. Using Ve=2.92 gives a answer that makes more sense, but I don't quite understand why V=2.92 is not just V. Any advice? Thanks
