The work function of magnesium metal is $5.90 \times {10}^{-19}J$.

If light of wavelength $\lambda = 250\ nm$ is shined on $Mg$, calculate the speed of the ejected electron in $\frac{m}{s}$.

The following values may be useful in your calculations:

$\text{Mass of electron} = 9.109 \times {10}^{-31} kg$

$c = 3.00 \times {10}^{8} \frac{m}{s}$

$h = 6.626 \times {10}^{-34} J \cdot s$
