A single conservative force acts on a 5.7ˍkg particle. The equation
Fx=(2.3x+3.7)N describes the force, where x is in meters. As the particle moves along the x-axis from x = 1.2ˍm to x = 8.9ˍm, calculate the work done by the force on this particle, the change in the potential energy of the system, and the kinetic
energy the particle has at x = 8.9ˍm if its speed is 5.4ˍm/s at x = 1.2ˍm.
