B Why KEmax=hf-work function?

  1. Oct 17, 2016 #1
    Why not KEmax=hf-work function+original KE orbiting the nucleus. In a photocell circuit with a photocell link to the cathode and collector in the anode

    The KE orbiting the nucleus is already in the work function.

    Then does the work function change with the temperature in the photocell metal?
