1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The potential energy V(R) of a two particle system exhibiting oscillatory behavior near a local minimum at the equilibrium separation Ro. V(R)= -(A/R)+(B/R^2) , where R is the interparticle separation. A) Sketch V(R), what happens to V(R) as R→0 B) At what value of R is there a minima in the potential? C) For very small oscillations about this equilibrium point, Ro, write the force on the particle F=-k(R-Ro), define k. 2. Relevant equations V(R)= -(A/R)+(B/R^2) 3. The attempt at a solution I must apologize in advance because I feel that I'm about to ask a stupid question. But how can I plot this function if I don't know what the values of A and B are?
