Title Atomic Interactions PhET Exploration - with Coulomb's Law application
Description In this activity, suitable for AP Chemistry, students will explore bonding and corresponding potential energy diagrams. Guiding questions lead students to consider the relationship between the components of Coulomb's law and what they know about atomic structure to justify the shape of the graph and magnitudes of force arrows.
