What is the relationship between the slope of the potential energy curve and the force on a particle in a potential field?

Option: 1

 A steeper curve results in a stronger force.

 

 


Option: 2

 A flatter curve results in a stronger force.

 

 


Option: 3

 The steepness of the curve has no effect on strength.

 

 


Option: 4

 The relationship between slope and strength depends on the type of potential field.

A steeper potential energy curve indicates a greater change in potential energy per unit change in position, corresponding to a stronger force acting on the particle. Conversely, a flatter curve indicates a smaller change in potential energy per unit change in position, which corresponds to a weaker force acting on the particle.
