Interaction Potential Energy Formula

Postby Jasmine 2C » Sun Nov 10, 2019 12:15 pm

Do we need to memorize the formula for interaction potential energy (the proportionality formula) or do we just need to remember how the variables relate to each other, say, how the radius affects interaction potential energy?

All you need to know is the relationship between the different variables. There is no calculation on the test.

You just have to be aware of the proportionality and that r is to the power of 6 so it has a pretty big impact.
