what do we mean by conservative forces
Asked by nikhil_bansal | 28th Apr, 2010, 12:21: PM
The work done by the force depends only upon initial and final position, and the work done is zero along a closed path, such a force is called a conservative force.
For example, gravitational force.
But frictional force is not conservative, since if we go along different paths to the same initial and final positions the work done is different.
