A100 g particle experiences the one-dimensional, conservative force Fx shown in the figure(Figure 1).

a)Let the zero of the potential energy be at x = 0 m.What is the potential energy at x = 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, and 4.0 m? Hint: Think about the definition of potential energy and the geometric interpretation of the work done by a varying force.

Express your answers using two significant figures separated by commas.

b)Suppose the particle is shot toward the right from x = 1.0 m with a speed of 19 m/s. Where is the particle's turning point?
