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.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
