RKRV potential energy curves and dissociation energies of NH and PH

  • R. R. Reddy
  • R. Viswanath


The RKRV turning points for the ground states of NH and PH have been calculated, and the dissociation energies have been obtained by the curve-fitting procedure using empirical potential functions with the RKRV potential energy curves. The estimated values of dissociation energies are 3.45 ± 0.14 and 3.16 ± 0.12 eV for NH and PH, respectively.
