-Relating Conservative Force and Potential Energy -Energy diagrams and Equilibrium. AP Physics C Mrs. Coyle. A Force is “Conservative” if:. “ the work this force does on an object that moves between two points depends only on the position of these two points and not on the path.”

ΔU is the change in potential energy of the system
xmax and –xmax :
A single conservative force acting on a particle varies as F=(-Ax+Bx2 )i N, where A and B are constants and x is in meters.
a) Calculate the potential energy function taking U=0 at x=0
b) Find the change in potential energy and change in kinetic energy as the particle moves from x=2.00m to x=3.00m
