• This simulation from the PhET collection is useful for letting students visualize the quantum behaviours behind the photoelectric effect. Be aware that the animation can be slow to load on some systems.


  • This simulation from The Physics Aviary is designed as a student activity or virutal lab. Students can individually manipulate voltage, light frequency, and brightness (unfortunately misspelled in the animation, be sure to warn students ahead of time to avoid them asking later), and the plate can be cycled through several different metals by clicking on it.
