Activity 14: Energy Diagrams March 6, 2008 A particle moves along the x-axis while acted on by a single conservative force parallel to the x-axis. The force corresponds to the potential-energy function graphed in the figure above. The particle is released from rest at point A. 1. What is the direction of the force on the particle when it is at point A? 2. At point B? 3. At what value of x is the kinetic energy of the particle a maximum?

Unformatted text preview: 4. What is the force on the particle when it is at point C? 5. What is the largest value of x reached by the particle during its motion? 6. What value or values of x correspond to points of stable equilibrium? 7. Of unstable equilibrium? Rank the following points along the x-axis in order of the x-component of force on the particle at that point, from most positive to most negative....
