58. (a) Using U = qV we can “translate” the graph of voltage into a potential energy graph (in eV units). From the information in the problem, we can calculate its kinetic energy (which is its total energy at x = 0) in those units: K i = 284 eV. This is less than the “height” of the potential energy “barrier” (500 eV high once we’ve translated the
