# Potential energy function and Force.

Please see the attached file.

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
