Ch5 HW4 (Homework) BRANDON JARROTT FELDKAMP PHYS 2211, section M, Fall 2008 Instructor: Jennifer Curtis Web Assign Current Score: 17 out of 21 Due: Monday, October 6, 2008 09:00 AM EDT Description Potential energy; gravitational potential energy Instructions Reading: Sections 5.8-5.10 Note that question 2 can help you organize your work on question 3. The due date for this assignment is past. Your work can be viewed below, but no changes can be made. 1. [MI2 05.X.25] 1/1 points 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 147 joules, what must have been the change U in the system's potential energy? U = -147 -147 J Solution or Explanation ( E particles + U ) = W ext Here, W ext = 0 because the system is isolated, so neccesarily U = - E particles . 2.
