Problem Details
A system in which only one particle can move has the potential energy shown in The figure shows the potential energy of a particle moving along the x-axis. The energy is measured in joules, and the x-coordinate is measured in centimeters. The energy is equal to U 1, as x equals to 0. Then the energy decreases linearly to 0 as x increases to 10, remains constant as x increases to 20, and increases linearly back to U 1 as x increases to 40 centimeters.. Suppose U1 = 16 J.
