A.t the turning points, the kinetic energy is (instantaneously) zero, so. the energy prin~iple (with gravitational patential energy U zero at y ::=0 and Wnc = 0 for the normalfarce of the track). gives E = 20 J = mgYmax = mg (4 mwe  b2)ITh . e GX .xmax' quadratic farmula pasitivesolution far x~ax) yields x~ax = (b + b2 + 4aE/mg)/2a == 4.46m2, so. Xmax = x2.i1 m. Solution
In Prablem 16 above, we faund the potential energy difference far a repulsive inverse square force, Problem
