  • Ruby negi thankyou
    there must be some minus sign in the potential given in the ques either between them or before x^2....

    try to do by urself too...

    dear first of all given potential is wrong in that question correct equation of potential is V(x) = -x^2/2 + x^4 /2. and for solutions see my attached file...

    potential is incorrect becoz when we found points it's will get imaginary point.... so correct ur question dear
  • Ruby negi
    dear,no ans is matching according to given potential , ques must be like -x^2/2+x^4/4 (like vaishali mam did).... the phase curve is like this according to the given potential..

    there is a typo in the problem. the second term should be negative. Otherwise no option will match. See the solution. fir small oscillation, you can show it by elliptical trajector...
