The potential energy of a particle on the xaxis is given by U+ 8xe ^xsquared/19 where x is 1 meter and U is in Joules. Please find the point on the xaxis for which the potential is a maximum or minimum. I've worked it three times and I get these three answers. Which one is correct?
4.359 m
3.082 m
1.202 m

How did you get those answers?
Where is the = sign in your equation?
