300. The Photoelectric Effect

Description

The photoelectric effect is an interesting phenomenon and does have some practical uses; however, its real importance lies in what we have learned about the quantum nature of light radiation from observations concerning the photoelectric effect. This is how Science advances – if new observations do not fit in with the existing theory, it is necessary to revisit the theory and either make changes or abandon it completely in favour of a new one.
