1. An atomic molecular physics experiment. Liz studies atomic physics and has an experiment whereby she can trap ions and measure electrostatic interactions. Consider the case where a lithium ion is held fixed in the experimental setup. For this problem treat the atom as a point charge, with all the charge localized to a point at its center. 1.1. Draw a picture of the physical system. Explain whether or not there are any electrostatic forces in space around the lithium ion. Explain whether there are any electrostatic field(s) in space around the lithium ion. No math is needed here, but be sure to label the forces and/or field in your diagram.
