Question: problem2 the net potential energy between two adjacent ions en...

Question details

Problem#2: The net potential energy between two adjacent ions, EN, may be represented as: r rn Calculate the minimum bonding energy (Eo in terms of the parameters A, B, and n using the following procedure: 1. Differentiate EN with respect to r, and then set the resulting expression equal to zero, since the curve of EN versus r is a minimum at Eo. (4 points) 2. Solve for r in terms of A, B, and n, which yields ro, the equilibrium interionic spacing. (4 points) 3. Determine the expression for Eo by substitution of ro into the above equation. (4 points) 4. Use the constants, A, B and n from problem to find ro and Eo from the equations you just derived from the previous steps and compare these with the graphical results of Problem 1.(4 points)
