The Lorentz force equation fully characterizes electromagnetic forces on stationary and moving charges.  Despite the simplicity of this equation, it is highly accurate and essential to the understanding of all electrical phenomena because these phenomena are observable only as a result of forces on charges. Sometimes these forces drive motors or other actuators, and sometimes they drive electrons through materials that are heated, illuminated, or undergoing other physical or chemical changes.  These forces also drive the currents essential to all electronic circuits and devices and this force oppose the light in atom. Maxwell’s macroscopic equations combined with a generalized form of the Lorentz law of force are a complete and consistent set of equations. As per the Einstein photo electric effect when it enter into an atom the equation will be hν=hν0 +1/2 mv2. When the photon enter in atom it oppose the light for this reason and when less energy photon enter in atom it is throw out by the electromagnetic force and for this reason the explanation of Einstein photo electric effect does not explain that what happen with less energy photon.
