Problem Details

The graph shows potential energy as a function of distance. Distance is measured from 0 to 7 meters on the x-axis. Potential energy is measured from 0 to 6 joules on the y-axis. Potential energy smoothly drops at the distance interval from 0 to 4 meters and smoothly rises at the interval from 4 to 7 meters. Several points can be distinguished unequivocally: 4 joules at 1 meter; 1 joule at 4 meters; 4 joules at 6 meters. is the potential-energy diagram for a 20 g particle that is released from rest at x = 1.0 m.

What is the particles maximum speed?

Where are the turning points of the motion?
