Ans : (b)

$I = 10^{-5}W/m^2\: \: \: \: \: A= 2cm^2 = 2 \times 10^{-4}m^2$

$P = I \times A$

$= 10^{-5} \times 2 \times 10^{-4}$

$= 2 \times10^{-9} J$

No. of layers of sodium that absorbs the incident energy, $n = 5$

Effective atomic area of a sodium atom, $A_e = 10^{-20}m^2$

Hence,no. of conduction electrons in $n$ layers,

$n’ = n \times \large\frac{A}{A_e}$

$= \large\frac{5 \times 2 \times 10^{-4}}{ 10^{-20}} = 10^{17}$

Hence, the amount of energy absorbed per electron, $E = \large\frac{P}{ n’}$

$= \large\frac{2 \times 10^{-9}}{10^{17}} = 2 \times 10^{-26} J/s$

Time required for photoelectric emission, $t = \large\frac{\phi_{\circ}}{E}$

$= \large\frac{3.2 \times 10^{-19}}{ 2 \times 10^{-26} } = 1.6 \times 10^7s ≈ 0.507$ years
