Unformatted text preview: can compute the initial potential energy. Repeating this several times for different values of the separation x, you will be able to construct a plot of the magnetic potential as a function of the separation between the magnets. Finally you measure the force exerted on the glider at some point Xs using the weight from a thread connected to the glider. We expect this is equal to the negative derivative of the magnetic potential graph at the separation distance Xs....
