1. A particle is subject to a force `F_x` that varies with position as shown in the figure. Find the work done by the force on the particle as it moves
(a) from `x = 0` to `x = 5.00 m`,
(b) from `x = 5.00 m` to `x = 10.0 m`,
(c) from `x = 10.0 m` to `x = 15.0 m`.
(d) What is the total work done by the force over the distance `x = 0` to `x = 15.0 m`?
