Hon Chemistry 1-10-18 Photoelectric Effect

HON CHEMISTRY: Wow check out this awesome example of the photoelectric effect – a giant solar flower in Buenos Aires, Argentina! It moves as it follows the sun. Click on the link to learn more. There’s also a link below the vodcast. Giant Solar Flower

Awesome field trip today! Hey what about other applications of the photoelectric effect? Are there tiny people living in boxes above the doors at Wal-mart and Target? What about solar calculators? And hey – what about those automatic flush toilets?!

CHEMISTRY: Fun field trip today! What? There really aren’t tiny people living in boxes above the doors at Wal-mart? Good job coming up with examples of the photoelectric effect. I hadn’t ever thought about those automatic flush toilets! πŸ™‚

What did you think about the problems? Again, make sure you not only memorize formulas, but also be careful to learn the symbols and units for each of the quantities you’re going to use, it’s easy to get them confused. Here’s the lecture from Monday – well, not exactly. Someone, and that would be me, forgot to turn on the mic, so here’s a blast from the past that will work.
