##
A potential-energy function is given by U = C/x, where C is a positive constant.

(a) Find the force Fx as a function of x.

(b) Is this force directed toward the origin or away from it?

(c) Does the potential energy increase or decrease as x increases?

(d) Answer parts (b) and (c) where C is a negative constant.
