Unformatted text preview: U(c) = 0, U(d) = + 2.0 mJ, U( ∞ ) = 0. [NOTE: "mJ" = millijoule = 103 J] (d) If no energy is dissipated by friction, drag, etc., what minimum amount of kinetic energy would the marble need when very far away (x = + ∞ ) and heading towards O in order for it to be able to reach point b? How much kinetic energy would it then have at point b? (e) What would be the marble's speeds at x = + ∞ and x = b in the previous part? (f) How much energy would need to be dissipated once the marble reaches point b in order for it to oscillate backandforth between points a and c but no further? (g) Illustrate your answers to parts (d) and (f) on the energy graph (Fig. 728) in the manner shown in Fig. 723....
