    you need the assumtion in part a to do part b...
    F=dU/dr for each atom/molecule
    and young modulas is just F/A * L/delta L

    I have tried to differentiate the equation in part (a), therefore,
    (dU/dr)r=ro = 0

    However, after solving, the equation that I got is quite different from the given one. I don't know where the (omega) comes from.

    Does omega equal to 4/3 pi r^3
