which quantity of a two particles system depend only on the seperation between the two particles? (a)kinetic energy (b)total mechanical energy (c)potential energy (d)both (a) & (b)

Expert Answer:

The potential energy is the quantity which depends only on the separation of the two particles.
 
The kinetic energy depends on the mass and velocity of the two particles, and hence total energy (which is sum of kinetic and potential) also depends on these factors.
