Problem: A 100 g particle experiences the one-dimensional, conservative force Fx shown in the figure.Let the zero of the potential energy be at x = 0 m.What is the potential energy at x = 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, and 4.0 m? Hint: Think about the definition of potential energy and the geometric interpretation of the work done by a varying force.Suppose the particle is shot toward the right from x = 1.0 m with a speed of 24 m/s. Where is the particles turning point?

Problem Details

A 100 g particle experiences the one-dimensional, conservative force Fx shown in the figureThe figure is a graph of x-component of a force F x versus distance x. F x is measured on the ordinate axis in newtons and x is measured on abscissa axis in meters. F x equals -20 at x equal to 0 and remains constant as x increases to 3. Then F x increases linearly to 0 as x increases to 4 and remains constant as x increases to 5..

Let the zero of the potential energy be at x = 0 m.What is the potential energy at x = 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, and 4.0 m? Hint: Think about the definition of potential energy and the geometric interpretation of the work done by a varying force.
