6.64: a) From Eq. (6.7), - = - - = - = = 2 1 2 1 2 1 . 1 1 1 1 2 2 x x x x x x x x x k x k x dx k dx F W The force is given to be attractive, so 0 < x F , and k must be positive. If 1 2 1 1 1 2 , x x x x < , and 0 < W . b) Taking “slowly” to be constant speed, the net force on the object is zero, so the force applied by the hand is opposite
