Problem Details

In The graph shows potential energy as a function of distance. Potential energy is measured from 0 to 16 joules on the y-axis. Distance is measured from 0 to 8 meters on the x-axis. Potential energy changes in four linear segments. First segment runs vertically from 20 to 2 joules at the 1 meter. Second segment rises from 2 to 8 joules at the distance interval from 1 to 4 meters. Third segment drops from 8 to 0 joules at the distance interval from 4 to 6 meters. Fourth segment rises from 0 to 12 joules at the distance interval from 6 to 8 meters. a particle has a mass of 220 g.

What is the maximum speed the particle could have at x = 2.0 m and never reach x = 6.0 m?
