The image above represents net force between two atoms.

To compute for net force between two atoms, two essential parameters are needed and these parameters are **Attractive Force (F _{A}) **and

**Repulsive Force (F**

_{R}).The formula for calculating net force between two atoms:

F_{N} = F_{A} + F_{R}

Where:

F_{N} = Net Force between Two Atoms

F_{A} = Attractive Force

F_{R} = Repulsive Force

Given an example;

Find the net force between two atoms when the attractive force is 15 and the repulsive force is 3.

This implies that;

F_{A} = Attractive Force = 15

F_{R} = Repulsive Force = 3

F_{N} = F_{A} + F_{R}

F_{N} = 15 + 3

F_{N} = 18

Therefore, the **net force between two atoms **is **18 N.**
