Open and Closed Systems Today: Energy in Macroscopic Systems Energy In Atomic Bonds Thermal Energy and Specific Heat
Chemical Bonds in Solids 2 s 1 Perfect spring: U= k s 2 S E U for two neutral atoms Atoms in solids stay close to equilibrium positions (lattice spacing = d). In vicinity of d, atomic potential looks like perfect spring potential!
