(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The force on a particle is directed along an x axis and given by [tex] F = F_0(\frac {x}{x_0} -1) [/tex]. Find the work done by the force in moving the particle from x = 0 to [tex] x = 2x_0 [/tex]

2. Relevant equations

F=ma, W=Fd, etc.

3. The attempt at a solution

I don't even know how to interpret that function. Does the [tex] x_0 [/tex] mean the initial position? Does [tex] F_0 [/tex] mean the initial force? I'm so confused. Any help would be appreciated.
