___A block oscillates without friction on the end of a spring as shown above.
The
minimum and maximum lengths of the spring as it oscillates are x
min
and x
max
,
respectively.
The graphs below represent quantities associated with the oscillation as functions of the
length x of the spring. Which graph can represent the total mechanical energy of the
blockspring system as a function of x?
