A particle of mass m moves in one dimension subject to the potential energy given by:

U(x) = -U_{o}e^{-(x/l)2}

where U_{o}is a positive constant with units of energy. Supposing that at time t=0 the mass has zero velocity and is located at position 0.01l, what is the position of the mass for all subsequent times?

2. Relevant equations
