Question details

05 (300 points): The net potential energy between two adjacent ions, EN, may be represented by A B EN Where A, B, and n are constants whose values depend on the ions. Calculate the bonding energy Eo in terms of the parameters A, B, and n using the following procedure: (1) Differentiate Ey with respect to r, and then set the resulting expression equal to zero, since the curve of Ev versus r is a minimum at Eo (2) Solve for r in terms of A, B, and n, which yields ro, the equilibrium interionic spacing. (3) Determine the expression for Eo by substitution of ro into the above equation for Ev.
