How can I show that the bulk modulus is about r^-4?

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Using the equations, show the bulk modulus is about r^-4.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Tried to plug Uij but it is not same as U. To be honest, I don't know where to start.

    What values were you given for ##m## and ##n##? If you weren't given values, what pair potential have you discussed in class?

    What's the relationship between ##r## and ##\Omega##?
