Although there are more lithium atoms/cc than lead atoms, lead is more dense because
lead atoms are much heavier than lithium atoms.

4-2 The net potential energy between two adjacent ions, may be represented by the Equation:

Net n
A B
E
r r
= +

Calculate the bonding energy E0 in terms of the parameters A, B, and n using the
following procedure:

(a) Differentiate E
Net
with respect to r, and then set the resulting expression equal to
zero, since the curve of E
Net
versus r is a minimum at E
0
.
(b) Solve for r in terms of A, B, and n, which yields r
0
, the equilibrium inter-ionic spacing.
(c) Determine the expression for E

4-4 Make a plot of bonding energy versus melting temperature for the metals listed in Table
2.3. Using this plot, approximate the bonding energy for copper, which has a melting
temperature of 1084C.

Below is plotted the bonding energy versus melting temperature for these four metals. From this
plot, the bonding energy for copper (melting temperature of 1084C) should be approximately 3.6
eV. The experimental value is 3.5 eV.
