Özet

The aim of this study was to investigate the students’ interpretation of I=f(V) graph and electron’s energy emitted by the photons on the photoelectric effect. The study was done at two different state universities’ physics education department with pre-service physics students in Ankara and Izmir. A total of 35 participants took part in this study. The data collected by the open-ended questions were analyzed by using content analysis method. The results of the study revealed that there were students’ learning difficulties regarding concepts of the photoelectric effect.

Anahtar Kelimeler: Photoelectric effect; learning difficulties; pre-service physics teachers
