The magnitude of the gravitational force between a particle of mass m1 and one of mass m2 is given by F(x) G m1m2 where G is a constant and x is the distance between the particles. (a) What is the corresponding potential energy function U(x)? Assume that U(x) 0 as x and that x is positive. (b) How much work is required to increase the separation of the particles from x ! x1 to x ! x1 & d? x2
