DISCLAIMER: I have not yet fully entered into the vast field of quantum mechanics and and was reading about the photoelectric effect as a part of chemistry, however I feel, the topic of structure of atom formally comes under physics so I will put forward my question over here. Please answer the question in the most rudimentary way as possible. Although I have completed sufficient amount of classical mechanics and electromagnetism to be able to understand certain terminologies so feel free to include that.
DISCLAIMER 2.0 (edit): the question which is linked is, whether or not the number of photoelectrons increase on increasing frequency.. My question is how does the change in frequency affect the photocurrent. (this was to differentiate the questions) In photoelectric effect experiment, why will the number of photoelectrons not change on increasing frequency?
MAIN QUESTION: Why doesn't the frequency affect the photocurrent? I understand that photointensity effects the photocurrent as number of photons striking in a unit area in unit time is increased, hence number of charged particles increased and hence, current flow increased. I also understand the fact that changing the frequency will only change the energy of the emitted electron and not the number of electrons. But my argument is, as the energy has been increased, so has the velocity, which suggests in unit time, more charged particles will flow. Shouldn't that increase the current flow? As per what I understand kinetic energy of particle increases then stopping potential too increases; current should also increase. Any help would be appreciated.
