PLANCK'S CONSTANT APPARATUS
This compact apparatus has an integrated photocell, as well as a voltmeter and nano-ammeter, and is safe and simple to use. It is designed to determine Planck's constant and the work done in emitting an electron using the stopping potential method.
This Planck's Constant Apparatus features five light emitting diodes (LEDs) of known mean wavelengths, to act as light sources of differing frequencies. The intensity of the light emitted by them can be varied from 0 to 100%.
Planck's Constant Apparatus can be used in a variety of experiments, including demonstrating how electron energy is independent of light intensity and depends on wavelength.
