1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Given a potential energy as a function of r, make a phase diagram for r>0.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I didn't write down the exact function for this, since this isn't a problem I have to do, but the thing is is I don't know how to draw phase diagrams.

Maybe we can use U(r) = U{sub naught}(r/R + ((^2)R)/(r)). Could someone walk me through how I would draw a phase diagram for this?
