SECTION-C
16. In crystal NaCl, each Na+ or Cl? ion is surrounded by 6 nearest neighbors of opposite
charge and 12 nearest neighbors of the same charge. Two sets of forces oppose each other
: the columbic attraction and the hard-core repulsion. The potential energy u (r) of the
crystal is given by the Lennard-Jones potential expression,
