1. ( Show all of your work ) The figure at the right shows a potential energy diagram U as a function of x for an object of mass 1 kg. (A) (5pts) At the point x =3m the object has a velocity of 2 m/sec. Find the mechanical energy E mech for this system and draw a line on the figure to represent the mechanical energy. (B) (5pts) What is the allowed range of the motion along x given the mechanical energy found above (hint: you can read this off of the graph)? (C) (10 pts) What is the force (magnitude and direction) acting on the object in each regions of the potential energy diagram in the allowed range of motion? Your answers should first describe the region ( x values) and then the magnitude and direction of the force.
2. (5pts) A massless spring of spring constant k = 25.0 N/m hangs motionless from the ceiling. You carefully attach a mass to the end of the spring with a weight of 5 N without letting the spring stretch
