- TL;DR Summary
- E=hf-W where W is a work function.

However we know that electrons in an atom will be excited only when radiated with photons of n*f0 discrete number of frequencies.

where E=hf-W is a continuous function. hows is that possible?

Is this because energy level is continuous within a conductor?

If we think of only one metal atom in free space, then it will only take n*f0 discrete number of frequencies, right?
