The Lennard-Jones potentialLennard-Jones potential describes long-range attraction and short-range repulsion. In both solids, liquids, and gases there are attractions and repulsions.

  1. Does it mean that Lennard-Jones form of potential is applicable to any phase of a substance?

  2. If yes, does the attractive and repulsive parts of the potential have the same origin in all phases?
