Chapter 8 - Potential Energy and Conservation of Energy - Questions: 2d

Answer

The mechanical energy must not exceed 6J.

Work Step by Step

The only notable energy that the particle has is potential energy. So at a certain point, the mechanical energy can't exceed the potential energy. When dealing with a range, the mechanical energy must not exceed the highest potential energy value in that range. In this range, the highest value is 6J, so mechanical energy must not exceed 6J.
