1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data This is the problem; it's multiple choice. When you try to stretch a bungee cord a distance x, it resists with an opposing force of the form b x2, where b is a constant. If b is measured to be 6 N/m2, how much work does it take to stretch the bungee cord a distance of 1 meter? 1. 0.5 Joule 2. 1 Joule 3. 3 Joules 4. 2 Joules 2. The attempt at a solution I originally thought this wasn't a hard question if the distance x is one, and b is 6 N/m^2 than the bungee cord is resisting with a force of six newtons, meaning you need to apply at least 6 N of force over one meter (6 Joule of energy/work). However, none of the possible answers are six. I don't see where my logic is wrong here. If anyone could enlighten me, that'd be great. Thanks!
