Understand the particulate nature of matter
Background image of page 4
We are modeling real atoms of liquids and solids as oscillating masses and springs. r Goal : To understand macroscopic phenomena (e.g. melting, vaporizing) and macroscopic properties of matter such as phases, temperature, heat capacities, in terms of microscopic constituents and its behavior.

The bond is an abstraction: Atoms that don’t have enough energy cannot escape the potential (force), so we treat them as bound until we add enough energy to free them.

If a bond is “broken” in an atom-atom potential, which of the following must be true: A. E tot < 0 B. E tot 0 C. PE < 0 D. PE 0 E. KE < 0 ε σ

If a bond is considered stronger, it means that: A. A greater well depth ε and a greater σ B. A smaller well depth ε and a greater σ A. A smaller well depth ε and no constraint on σ D. A smaller well depth ε and a smaller σ E. A greater well depth ε and no constraint on σ ε σ
