Web Assign Current Score: 9 out of 21 Due: Wednesday, February 27, 200812:00 PM EST 1. 1/1 points | 1/4 submissions Consider an isolated system, by which we mean a system free of external forces. If the sum of the particle energies in the system increases by 154 joules, what must have been the change U in the system's potential energy? U = -154 -154 J Solution or Explanation ( E particles + U ) = W ext Here, W ext = 0 because the system is isolated, so neccesarily U = - E particles . 2. 8/8 points | 2/4 submissions
