kodeih (njk359) – HW 7 – Coker – (56625) 1 This print-out should have 18 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. This assignment covers the general defini- tion of potential energy for a conservative force, general types of conservation of energy examples (with 2 or more forces doing work), potential energy diagrams, and the concept of binding energy. 001 10.0 points A synthetic rubber band resists being stretched a distance x from equilibrium with a force vector F b ( x ) = ˆ ı b x 2 , where b is a constant. What is the potential energy U b ( x ) associ- ated with this elastic band? 1. b x 2 2 2. + b x 3 3 3. zero 4. b x 3 3 5. 2 b x 6. + b x 2 2 7. +2 b x 002 10.0 points In a certain region of space, a particle expe- riences a potential energy U ( x ) = A x 2 + B , where A and B are constants.

    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.
