Short Answer

A particle moving on the axis experiences a force given by , where is a constant. How much work is done on the particle as it moves from to ?

Work done by particle

See the step by step solution

Step by Step Solution

Step 1. Given information

We have,


is constant

Step 2. Find the expression for the work done in the interval

A force F that acted on an object with mass m is parallel to the direction of motion and causes displacement delta rightarrowx for that object

We are given the force as a function of x by Fx=qx2
