A particle of mass 5 1.18 kg is attached between two identical springs on a

frictionless, horizontal tabletop. Both springs have spring constant and are initially unstressed, and the particle is at 5 0. (a) The particle is pulled a distance along a direc-tion perpendicular to the initial configuration of the springs as shown in Figure P6.68. Show that the potential energy of the system is :
