Unformatted text preview: U(c) = 0, U(d) = + 2.0 mJ, U( ) = 0. [NOTE: "mJ" = millijoule = 10-3 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 back-and-forth between points a and c but no further? (g) Illustrate your answers to parts (d) and (f) on the energy graph (Fig. 7-28) in the manner shown in Fig. 7-23....
