    a) Write down, in the form F(x) i, the force that gives rise to this potential function.

    b) The total energy of the system is a constant, E. For each of the following values of E state, with a reason, a range of ranges (accurate to one decimal place) of x-values that could represent a motion of the system. Explain how you obtained your values.

    i) E = -5
    ii) E = 5
    iii) E = 15
    iv) E = 25
