Problem 9CQ

What is a conservative force?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 2:

Our aim of this question is to define the conservative force.

  • A force is said to be conservative if the work done by or against it only depends on the starting and the ending points of the path. These two points are independent of the path.
  • The conservative force offers the conversion between kinetic and potential energies (reversible).
  • The net work done by the conservative force on a particle in a closed loop is zero.
