I think, It should be true.

Vaishu said:   6 years ago
Need more information about it. Please explain.

I think at 0 k temperature most of electrons free to move, so Work function is the minimum energy required to escape the electrons.

Work function is the minimum energy required to escape the electrons form the metal surface in absolute temperature.

Naveen kumar said:   8 years ago
I also required more information for this.

Work function is the minimum energy required by an electron to escape from a metal surface at 0 temperature or at a given temperature electron escapes at work function equal to applied energy plus equivalent energy of temperature.

Please explain it with details.

Pratiksha said:   9 years ago
Please explain the above statement.

Work function always minimum, because it takes less energy to move conduction band to valance band.

Gnena sai said:   9 years ago
I want more explanation regarding to it.
