## Physics for Scientists and Engineers: A Strategic Approach with Modern Physics (4th Edition)

$W = (0.632)~L~F_0$
We can find the work that the force does on the particle as it moves from x = 0 to x = L $W = \int_{0}^{L}~F_x~dx$ $W = \int_{0}^{L}~F_0~e^{-x/L}~dx$ $W = -L~F_0~e^{-x/L}~\Big\vert_{0}^{L}$ $W = (-L~F_0~e^{-L/L})-(-L~F_0~e^{-0/L})$ $W = (-L~F_0~\frac{1}{e})-(-L~F_0)$ $W = L~F_0~(1-\frac{1}{e})$ $W = (0.632)~L~F_0$
