Physics 1112, Coop for Week 8 Name:__________________ Partners:______________________________ 1 1. Consider this graph of the potential energy of a proton and a nucleus. Here rrepresents the distance of the proton from the center of the nucleus. (a) Are there any points of stable, unstable, or neutral equilibrium? If so, where are they? (b) Where is the force on the proton attractive? Where is the force repulsive? (c) Where is the force on the proton maximum in magnitude? Approximately what is this maximum force? (d) On the axes provided, sketch a graph of the force
