A particle of mass m moves in one dimension along the positive x axis. It is acted on by a constant force directed toward the origin with magnitude B, and an inverse square law repulsive force with magnitude A/x^2.

a) Find the potential energy function U(x)
b) Sketch the energy diagram for the system when the maximum kinetic energy is Ko=(1/2)mVo^2.
c) Find the equilibrium position Xo.
d) What is the frequency of small oscillation about Xo?

Here is a brief explanation about how to do each part of the problem. See the attached file for details on each step.

a) To solve for U(x), we must integrate the force equation over the variable x (see attached)

When we did the integration from part a), we are left with a constant of integration. We ...

Solution Summary

The solution is comprised of a detailed explanation for the behavior of a particle moving in one dimension acted on by various forces.

A small particle slides along a frictionless wire. If the particle's speed at point A is 8.85m/sec how fast is it moving at point B if it must go up a 2m incline?

If the speed ( in m/sec ) of a particle moving on the x-axis at time t seconds (t>0) is given by:
V(t)=t^3-8t^2+15t+10
estimate during what time period the speed of the particle is less than 10m/sec.
a t=2/t=4seconds
b t=4/t=6 seconds
c t=4/t=5 seonds
d t=3/t=5seconds

The position of a particle which moves along a straight line is defined by: x=t^3-6t^2-15t+40, where x is in feet and t is in seconds. Determine the time at which the velocity will be zero, the position and distance traveled at that time, and the acceleration of the particle at that time.

Two flat, rectangular plates with a lateral dimension w*l lie parallel, one above the other, a distance h apart. The gap between them is filled with molten polymer. One plate is fixed; the other moves parallel to it in the direction of the dimension l at velocity v, causing the fluid to be sheared. Show that the fluid is displac
