Photoelectron's energies

  1. Apr 15, 2015 #1
    Hi
    Why kinetic energy of photoelectrons rise up to a maximum?
    Thanks

    That question does not make sense.
    If you ask why it has a maximum: energy conservation. You cannot create energy.

    What you have asked is what I understood but this question is from an actual advanced physics exam taken in the past. So why does it have maximum?

    I doubt that what you have written was the whole of the question. There must be some context if you need a proper answer.
    Energy conservation always applies.
