I have the equation for the Morse potential, U = E_0 (1-exp(-a(r-r_0))^2. I'm asked to show that near the minimum of the curve the potential energy is a parabolic function. I've tried to play around with the taylor series with no hope! :( :((adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Many thanks, James
