    Answer with Explanation:

    We are given that

    Threshold wavelength,\lambda_0=262 nm=262\times 10^{-9} m

    1 nm=10^{-9} m

    a.Work function,w_0=\frac{hc}{\lambda_0}

    Where h=6.626\times 10^{-34}

    c=3\times 10^8 m/s

    Using the formula

    w_0=\frac{6.626\times 10^{-34}\times 3\times 10^8}{262\times 10^{-9}}

    w_0=7.59\times 10^{-19} J

    b.Wavelength,\lambda=222nm=222\times 10^{-9} m

    K.E=\frac{hc}{\lambda}-7.59\times 10^{-19}

    K.E=\frac{6.626\times 10^{-34}\times 3\times 10^8}{222\times 10^{-9}}-7.59\times 10^{-19}

    K.E=8.95\times 10^{-19}-7.59\times 10^{-19}=1.36\times 10^{-19} J

    Hence, the maximum kinetic energy of an electron emitted=1.36\times 10^{-19} J
