HW A Problem 2.14 a. To Find: The bond energy between two ions (E O ) expressed as a function of three parameters A, B and n. b. Given: The equation representing variation of the net potential energy between two adjacent ions (E N ) with inter-ionic spacing (r) : E N = + (±1) c. Assumptions: None Obvious d. Solution: (1) Differentiating the given equation, we get: dr r B d dr r A d dr dE n + = (±2) b dr dE = 1) + ( 1) + (1 n r nB r A (±3) The minimum in the E vs r curve occurs when dr dE = 0 b 1) + ( (2) n r nB r A = 0 b 1) + ( (2) n r nB r A = (±4)
