Photoelectric effect: positive collector


Karishma performs a photoelectric effect experiment. She places electron counters just in front of the cathode and the anode.
The first electron counter measures the number of electrons emitted by the cathode per second, NC. The second measures the number of electrons collected by the anode per second, NA.
Choose the statements that best describe the variation of NC and NA with potential.
