Ans : (a)

$ \lambda = 2271 \times 10^{-10} m\: \: \: \: \: \: \: V_{\circ}= 1.3 V$

So, $ \phi_{\circ}=hv - eV_{\circ}$

$= \large\frac{hc}{\lambda} - eV_{\circ}$

$= \large\frac{6.6 \times 10^{-34} \times 3 \times 10^8}{(2271 \times10^{-10} ) – 1.6 \times 10^{-19} \times 1.3}$

$= 8.72 \times 106{-19} – 2.08 \times 10^{-19}$

$= 6.64 \times 10^{-19} J$

$= \large\frac{6.64 \times 10^{-19}}{ 1.6 \times 10^{-19} } = 4.15\: eV$

So,$ v_{\circ}$ = threshold frequency of metal = $ \large\frac{\phi_{\circ}}{h}$

$= \large\frac{6.64 \times 10^{-19}}{6.6 \times 10^{-34} } = 1.006 \times 10^{15}Hz$

$ \lambda_r=$ wavelength of red light $ = 632.8\: A^{\circ} = 6328 \times 10^{-11}m$

So, $ v_r= \large\frac{c}{\lambda_r} = \large\frac{3 \times 10^8}{ 6328 \times 10^{-11} } = 4.74 \times 10^{15}Hz$

Since,$ v_{\circ} < v_r$ , so photocell would respond.
