Problem Details

The graph shows potential energy as a function of distance. Distance is measured from 0 to 1 meter on the x-axis. Potential energy is measured from 0 to 2 joules on the y-axis. Energy rises linearly from 0 to 2 joules in the distance interval from 0 to 0.5 meters. Then it drops linearly from 5 to 0 joules in the distance interval from 0.5 to 1 meter. shows the potential energy of a system in which a particle moves along the x-axis.
