Radial Motion in a Coulombic Field
Two submicroscopic particles bound together as a system are subject to (a) movement of their center of mass, (b) unidirectional and back-and-forth rotation about this center, and (c) oscillation in the interparticle distance, also about the center of mass. The first two movements have been considered in Chapters 1 and 2; but the third motion is generally different from and more complicated than the simple harmonic motion treated in Chapter 3.
