Question: the net potential energy between two adjacent ions e may...

Question details

The net potential energy between two adjacent ions, E may be represented by the sum of the attractive and repulsive energies: 3. A B Calculate the bonding energy, E, in terms of the parameters A, B, and n uwing the following procedure 1. Differentiate Ey withrespect to r, and then set the resulting expression equal to zero, since the curve of versus r is a minimum at E. 2. Solve for r in terms of A, B, and n, which yields ro, the equilibrium interionic spacing. 3. Determine the expression for E, by substitution of r, into Ev equation above.
