The Coulomb potential between two heavy ions at their interpretation condition has been represented in terms of two point charges with reduced effective charge, dependent on overlap volume. This representation enables visualization of the dynamic development of the deformations of the colliding nuclei as a function of the degree of overlap. The potential has been compared with well known potentials for heavy-ion collisions. This Coulomb potential gave good agreement in reproducing excitation functions for fusion for a large number of heavy-ion systems.
