So i have this problem.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

An isolated copper sphere of radius 5.00cm, initially uncharged, is illuminated by ultraviolet light of wavelength 200nm. What charge will the photoelectric effect induce on the sphere? The work function for copper is 4.70 eV.

Can someone help me conceptualize whats going on here so i can start figuring out this problem?
