Hi! I have to find the velocity as a function of displacement for some given force functions. Here is the question: Find the velocity \(\dot x\) as a function of the displacement \(x\) for a particle of mass \(m\), which starts from rest at \(x=0\), subject to the following force functions:

    (a) \(F_x=F_0+cx\) (c) \(F_x=F_0\cos(cx)\) If I see the general technique, I might be able to get it! Thanks!

    Does that work out? Is the \(x\) in \(F_x=F_0+c\large x\) a function of \(t\)?

    Both 1 and 2 you are given simply can be solved using the last equation I gave you. It is true and works properly.
