Problem 17DQ

Since only changes in potential energy are important in any problem, a student decides to let the elastic potential energy of a spring be zero when the spring is stretched a distance x1. The student decides, therefore, to let Is this correct? Explain.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 17DQ Step 1 of 1: No, The given formula is derived by integrating very small potential energies and is only valid when spring's initial position is at x = 0.
