A fluor ion oscillating thanks to two ions

  1. Jan 23, 2017 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I got an alpha particle (charge 2+) fixed at x=0 and an electron fixed at x=2. I then add a fluor ion (charge 1-) to the right of the electron. The question is to find the constant spring (k) relative to the harmonic oscillation made by the fluor atom for small movements around its equilibrium.

    If someone can help me, I'd be very grateful!
