AP Physics C:Mechanics Question
A 10 kg object is constrained to move along the x-axis. At
time t= 0, the object is at position x=0 and initially
moving 4 m/s to the right; is subsequent motion over ten
seconds is shown in the graph. The object is subject only
to a conservative net force so that the total energy of the
object is 400 J. Explain how a graph of the potential
energy function can be constructed from the given information. State three specific points on the
potential energy graph and the shapes of the curves connecting these points, and explain your reasoning.
