    From the vertical axis we can see that the values of the energy with the added quadrupole moment are slowly approaching the monopole energy. This shows that for smaller nuclei that the quadrupole moment becomes negligible. This probably due to their dependence on the size and shape of the nucleus and thus this will become zero when considering a point-like nucleus.
