2 A particle is moving along the x -axis acted on by a conservative force along the x -axis. At a certain point where the force is zero: A. the potential energy is zero. B. the potential energy is greater than zero. C. the potential energy is less than zero. D. not enough information to decide.

3 When looking at a potential energy diagram,one can tell the force…. A. by looking at the slope of the potential energy versus position graph. B. by looking at the area under the potential energy versus position graph. C. by looking at the largest potential energy value. D. It is impossible to tell force from a potential energy diagram.

5 At a point of unstable equilibrium, the force A. has its largest magnitude. B. is zero. C. points toward a minimum. D. can point in any arbitrary direction.

13 Problem 7.77 A particle with mass m is acted by a conservative force and moves along a path given by x = x 0 cos ω t and y = y 0 sin t , where x 0 , y 0 , and are constants. (a) Find the components of the force that acts on the particle. (b) Find the potential energy of he particle as a function of x and y . Take U = 0 when x =0 and y = 0. (c) Find the total energy of the particle when (i) x = x 0 , y =0, and (ii) x = 0, y = y 0 .
