Which of the following is true as regards photo emission?
Velocity of emitted electrons is dependent on light intensity
Rate of photo emission is inversely proportional to light intensity
Maximum velocity of electron increases with decreasing wave length
Both holes and electrons are produced
Answer: Option

As wavelength decreases, frequency increases and maximum velocity of electron increases.

The power dissipation in a transistor is the product of
emitter current and emitter to base voltage
emitter current and collector to emitter voltage
collector current and collector to emitter voltage
none of the above
Answer: Option

Maximum power dissipation occurs at collector junction.
