Chapter 43 563 P43.53 The total potential energy is given by Equation 43.17: U ke r B r e m total =− + α 2 . The total potential energy has its minimum value U 0 at the equilibrium spacing, rr = 0 . At this point, dU dr = = 0 0, or dU dr d dr r B r r mB r e m e m = = + + F H G I K J = 0 0 22 0 2 0 1 0 αα . Thus, B m r e m = 2 0 1 .
