Question

A particle moving along the x axis is subject to a force
                               Fx = −ax + bx^3
where a and b are constants.

(a) How much work does this force do as the particle moves from x1 to x2?

(b) If this is the only force acting on the particle, what is the change of kinetic energy during this motion?
