a ball is thrown vertically upward from the 12m level with an initial velocity of 18m/s. at that instant, an open elevator pases the 5m level moving upward with constant velocity of 2m/s. find the relative velocity of the ball w.r.t. elevator when the ball hits the elevator?

the potential energy U(x) of a particle moving along x-axis is given by U(x) = ax-bx2 .find the equillibrium position of the particle ?
At eqm. position the net Force would be zero. As, F = – dU/dx => -(a -2bx) = 0 a = 2bx x = a/2b would be the eqm. position.
