Can a potential energy curve be vertical ?
Welcome to the PF.
Please give a lot more details, so we can try to answer your question. PE versus what? PE is on the vertical axis of a 2-D plot, and what is on the horizontal axis?
Also, is this question for homework?
It is potential energy vs the distance from the standard position.
It is not my home work problem
How would you describe what a 'vertical' curve of Potential with distance implies? Is that feasible? What about a 'very steep' slope, rather than totally vertical?
Ya exactly that is the question..is it feasible.i have encountered such a graph in a standard text book.
And how would YOU describe what happens at that position?
Could you Upload a picture of that graph?
