Unformatted text preview: Sketch the force on the particle as a function of x. Recall that the force is the negative slope of the potential function), and use this sketch to describe (in words) why the particle oscillates. C. Suppose that a fast movie camera identifies the speed of the particle just when it crosses the location x=1.5 meters as 5 m/s. What will be the speed of the particle when it reaches x=0? D. For the condition described in part C), what is the maximum amplitude of the oscillator? E. Suppose the particle has a total energy of 10J. What is the maximum amplitude of the oscillations under this condition?...
