## Homework Statement

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

(a) Total energy is

$$E=\frac{-e^2}{4\pi\epsilon_{0}R}-\frac{B}{R^{5/6}}$$

Taking derivative of E with respect to R and equating it to zero when R=R0 yields,

i.e,

$$\frac{dE}{dR}{\bigg|}_{R=R_0}=0$$

when R=R0

yields,

$$B=\frac{3e^2}{10\pi\epsilon_{0}{R_{0}}^{1/6}}$$

How to proceed with part (b) and part (c)? giving me hints to solve this problem is highly helpful.
