Hi all,

I recently saw a very nice diagram of the morse potential on wikipedia



I am curious if anyone has any suggestions as to how this diagram was made? What software package was used? In particular how the actual morse curve was plotted.

Well, if I were to make this plot, I would use R. It could do everything on the plot fairly easily, with the exception of the spring in the dumbbell. I would do that in a drawing program, and take a screen shot and embed it in the R plot.

It's very do-able with matplotlib, too.
