    Best Answer: hf = work function + KE

    However if you are looking at the max wavelength (or threshold frequency) then there will only be just enough energy for the photoelectrons to be liberated, hence their KE will be 0.

    So hf = work function

    convert eV to joules, 2.4 x (1.6 x 10^-19) = 3.84 x 10^-19

    therefore, hf = 3.84 x 10^-19

    f = 3.84 x 10^-19 / planck's constant which is 6.63 x 10^-34

    f = 5.79 x 10^14 Hz

    c = frequency x wavelength,

    wavelength = speed of light/frequency

    = (3x10^8) / (5.79x10^14)

    =5.18 x 10^-7 metres
