Phase Diagram: How to draw one

  1. Feb 15, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Given a potential energy as a function of r, make a phase diagram for r>0.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I didn't write down the exact function for this, since this isn't a problem I have to do, but the thing is is I don't know how to draw phase diagrams.

    Maybe we can use U(r) = U{sub naught}(r/R + ((µ^2)R)/(r)). Could someone walk me through how I would draw a phase diagram for this?
