It has been for more than a century that in the modern physics campus classical physics is chided as being incapable of proposing convincing explanation on the photoelectric effect. However, to this author, there appears some interesting evidence that witnesses the opposite. As the number one evidence, Fig.01 in the text portion of this article shows many curves defying the linearity supposedly entitled on them by the equation E_max=hf-W , which is proposed based on the concept of photon, or quantum in explaining the photoelectric effect. Contrary to the chiding from the modern physics, as we will see, classical physics, relying on the assumption of existence of Aether, can explain the geometry behavior of all these curves, while exposing the self-refutation nature of the equation E_max=hf-W. This author believe that classical physics has shown us an abundance of credits for it to reclaim its authority in the study of physics. If we ever apply it and found it fails us, do not blame classical physics, but reexamine our work!
