# Calculations of Potential and Work

1. Could you please plot this function? (see attached file)

2. A particle moves along the trajectory shown in Fig. 2 and is acted upon by the force F = 3x^2*i + 3y^2*j

(a) Calculate the work W done by the force on the particle using the definition of the work (see attached file for formula).

(b) Find the potential force F

(c) Calculate the work using the potential and compare to your answer in (a).
