**A particle of mass m is moving along the x-axis and experiences a force F(x), also along the x-axis, given by F(x) = -kx. Deduce an expression for the potiential energy of the particle.**

**I tried intergrating both side (just to see if it gave me anything helpful). I got ∫F(x)dx=mv for the left hand side and -(1/2)kx^2 on the right hand side but i still don't have the answers. Any help would be much appreciated :)**
