1. If the electron behaved as a classical (non-quantum) particle and NOT somehow connected to a spring inside the metal, then one would expect that photoelectrons would be emitted _______

above a threshold intensity
above a threshold wavelength
above a threshold frequency
at a specific frequency

3. In the photoelectric effect, how was the maximum kinetic energy measured?
