Unformatted text preview: (iii) Suppose the welldepth at point C is denoted by –ε . Two atoms had a net kinetic energy of +1.5 ε at point C. What is the minimum amount of work you need to do on the two atoms to separate them to infinity? (Given that the value of the potential at D is +0.6 ε ). (iv) At point E, what is the net kinetic energy of the two atoms from part (iii)? (v) Suppose the plot of the potential continues as depicted above for very large values of x i.e. the potential continues to decrease linearly with x as x → ∞ ! What is the nature of the force between the atoms when they are very far apart?
