A positive potential energy becomes more positive.
A positive and a negative charge are released from rest in vacuum. They move toward each other. As they do: A positive potential energy becomes more positive. A positive potential energy becomes less positive. A negative potential energy becomes more negative. A negative potential energy becomes less negative. A positive potential energy becomes a negative potential energy. C 6 6

the electric potential energy increases.
A positively charged object and a negatively charged object are pulled away from one another. Then: the electric potential energy increases. the electric potential energy stays the same. the electric potential energy decreases. A: the electric potential energy Is KQ(-Q)/d is negative and Moving the charges apart makes The potential energy less negative and So increases.

Not enough information to compare the speeds at these points.
An electron follows the trajectory shown from point 1 to point 2. At point 2, v2 > v1. v2 = v1. v2 < v1. Not enough information to compare the speeds at these points. C electron increases its potential Energy as it moves further away From attracting positive charge So KE decreases. 13 13

Two protons, one after the other, are launched from point 1 with the same speed. They follow the two trajectories shown. The protons’ speeds at points 2 and 3 are related by v2 > v3. v2 = v3. v2 < v3. Not enough information to compare their speeds. B: E field is conservative so change In potential does not depend on Path to equipotential surface. 14 14

The smaller balloon empties into The bigger one.
Two identical balloons are connected after blowing one up to about ½ its maximum volume, the other to about ¼ its maximum volume. When the valve is turned so air can equalize between the two balloons The balloons will become equal in size. The large balloon will become a bit smaller, the small balloon a bit bigger. The large balloon will become bigger, the small balloon smaller. Nothing will happen. The smaller balloon empties into The bigger one.

Multiply the vertical axis by -20 nC to get potential energy plot with vertical axis in multiples of 2 microjoules. The negative sign of the charge flips the graph upside down. (a) The point of maximum speed is then the point of lowest potential energy which occurs at x=8 cm (b) particle's kinetic energy = 5 microjoule (add potential energy released to existing kinetic energy) (c) Turning point is when potential energy equals original kinetic energy, x=3 cm. (d) force on particle at turning point is charge times E=-dV/dx at x=3 so -20 nC times (0 -(-100)V)/( m) = ...
