Unformatted text preview: Starting with the lattice vectors given above, derive algebraic expressions for the factors A6 and A12 that appear in the total energy expression for the energy per atom. Express these factors in terms of the parameter η ≡ c a . In the end, your energy/atom expression for the solid should look like: 12 6 ⎛ ⎛σ ⎞ ⎛σ ⎞ ⎞ energy = 2 ε ⎜ A12 η × ⎜ ⎟ − A6 η × ⎜ ⎟ ⎟...
