  • One electronvolt is the energy transfer when an electron moves through a potential difference of 1 volt, given by: 1 eV = 1. 60x10-19 J The minimum energy required for the electron to escape the metal is called the work function, Φ If energy is less than Φ, then no emission occurs Emission is possible when hf = Φ

  • The observations also reveal why ground-based gamma-ray telescopes, which detect even higher energy gamma rays as they zip through the Earth's atmosphere, have failed to observe gamma rays from this remnant: while many of these protons are produced in the giga-electronvolt energy range, very few are produced in the tera-electronvolt energy range.
