Chertok, Physics 7A 10 DLM09 3.1.4 Follow up of DLM08 FNTs: Relate particle spacing to “non-interaction” of ideal gas molecules. Use PE graph Two atoms and r=1.2σ. What is total energy if: a) atoms at rest, or, b) atoms have total KE 0.1ε Use total energy plus fact that KE≥0 to plot KE for atom-atom potential Plot Etot and KE for various Etot M.
