Unformatted text preview: forces acting. (a) at what distances R is it possible for the particle to be in a stable state of uniform circular motion around the origin. (b) for values of R at which uniform circular motion is possible, please determine the velocity as a function of R . Express your answers in terms of L , M and E LJ . Historical note: Lennard-Jones was one British person with a multiple surname. Physics note: the potential is a reasonable representation of the interaction be-tween two neutral atoms: strongly repulsive at short distances and weakly attractive at long distances.
