# n-6 Lennard-Jones potential

The **n-6 Lennard-Jones potential** is a variant the more well known Lennard-Jones model (or from a different point of view, a particular case of the Mie potential). The potential is given by ^{[1]}:

where

- is the intermolecular pair potential between two particles, "1" and "2".
- is the diameter (length),
*i.e.*the value of at which - is the well depth (energy)

## Melting point[edit]

An approximate method to locate the melting point is given in ^{[2]}. See also ^{[3]}.
