A perfectly elastic rubber framework is stretched by a force applied to its end. This force as a function of the x coordinate of the end is:
(1) F = 52.8 x + 38.4 x^2

PART a. By integration, find the work done by this applied force from position x1=.5 m to x2= 1 m.

PART b. With the end at position x2, a frictionless mass of M= 2.17 kg is attached to the end. Upon release the mass is moved to x3 = .75 m. Find the speed of the mass at that point.
