A single conservative force F = (6.0x - 11)i N, where x is in meters, acts on a particle moving along an x axis. The potential energy U associated with this force is assigned a value of 24 J at x = 0. (a) What is the maximum positive potential energy? At what (b) negative value and (c) positive value of x is the potential energy equal to zero?

  1. Does the "i" in the force equation indicate that the force is always in the +y direction? Or is it a typo error?

    If the force is in the y direction and the movement is along the x axis, the potential energy U does not change as a function of x, but it does depend upon y.
