Write 2 page essay on the topic MAT205-0802A-03 College Math.(Freedman & Young, 1996)The data above was generated from Equation 1 with the k=4 and x being considered as a unit of distance for simplicity. A trend line of polynomial provides the best fit equation. The bouncing behavior of the spring is illustrated by the parabolic shape of the potential energy.

As x approaches zero (as the spring shrinks back to its original form) the potential energy becomes zero and is converted to a fully kinetic energy. Zobel, E. A. (2008). Definition of a Rational Function. Retrieved April 26, 2008, from Zona Land: Education in Physics and Mathematics:
