18.5. Set Up: An electron has charge For a pair of point charges, Let and Let be the electron. The potential energy of the electron is the sum of and Solve: (a) (b) and Reflect: The potential energy is negative since the charge of the electron has opposite sign from the charge of each of the other two particles. The magnitude of the potential energy increases when the electron moves toward the larger charge. 18.6. Set Up: For a pair of point charges the electrical potential energy is In the O-H-N combination the is 0.170 nm from the and 0.280 nm from the In the N-H-N combination the is 0.190 nm from the and 0.300 nm from the other U is positive for like charges and negative for unlike charges. Solve: (a) O-H-N N-H-N The total potential energy is (b) In the hydrogen atom the electron is 0.0529 nm from the proton. The magnitude of the potential energy in the hydrogen atom is about a factor of 4 larger than what it is for the adenine-thymine bond.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
