# Topic: Conservative force

 Potential Energy The force on an object is the negative of the derivative of the potential function U. This means it is the negative of the slope of the potential energy curve. If the force is known, and is a conservative force, then the potential energy can be obtained by integrating the force. A conservative force may be defined as one for which the work done in moving between two points A and B is independent of the path taken between the two points. hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu /hbase/pegrav.html   (544 words)

 Conservative force The force due to gravity, opposing the motion, is mg sinθ along the incline. Conservative force transfers energy "to" and "from" an object during a closed path motion in equal measure. Conservative force tansfers energy between kinetic energy of the object in motion and the potential energy of the system interating with the object. cnx.org /content/m14104/latest   (1561 words)

 Spartanburg SC | GoUpstate.com | Spartanburg Herald-Journal   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-24) This implies that when conservative forces are at work, an object may be moved around and afterwards restored to its initial position, without any energy being transferred to or from the object. Conservative force fields are curl-less as a direct consequence of Helmholtz decomposition. The most familiar conservative forces are gravity, the electric force, and spring force. www.goupstate.com /apps/pbcs.dll/section?category=NEWS&template=wiki&text=conservative_force   (350 words)

 THE CONSERVATION OF ENERGY - Title Examples of conservative forces are the spring force and the gravitational force. A force is conservative if the work it does on a particle that moves through a round trip is zero; otherwise, the force is non conservative. A force is conservative if the work done by it on a particle that moves between two points is the same for all paths connecting these points; otherwise, it is non-conservative. teacher.pas.rochester.edu /phy121/LectureNotes/Chapter08/Chapter8.html   (2236 words)

 Kids.Net.Au - Encyclopedia > Conservative force A conservative force is a force which is not path-dependent. The term conservative force comes from the fact that when a conservative force exists, it is possible to view the effects of the force in terms of a change in potential energy which keeps the mechanical energy conserved. An example of a non-conservative force is friction. www.kids.net.au /encyclopedia-wiki/co/Conservative_force   (107 words)

 Work and Energy Review - Q#1-Q#10 Answers The force is horizontal and the displacement is horizontal. The force is upwards and parallel to the incline and the displacement is in the same direction parallel to the incline. The force of gravity and elastic (spring) force are both examples of a conservative forces. www.glenbrook.k12.il.us /gbssci/Phys/chemphys/reviews/u11review/u11ans1.html   (4007 words)

 SECTION ONE When the gravitational force does work on the object by accelerating it, the system’s mechanical energy remains constant because potential energy is quantitatively being transformed into kinetic energy, i.e., the process is conservative and gravitational force is a conservative force. Still, the work done by the gravitational force, and consequently the change in potential energy of the system, depends only on the change in vertical distance to the surface because this is the direction of the force. The net force acting on the sphere is the sum of the gravitational force, which is constant, and the viscous force, which is increasing from an initial value of zero at rest. www.fiu.edu /~cuervol/PhysiologicalMechanisms/MatTransp-Intro.htm   (4421 words)

 The Air Force Pundit That’s why U.S. and Iraqi forces were excited recently to witness local trucks arrive, accompanied by the Iraqi Army, at a Baqubah flour mill with 560 tons of imported wheat to feed the people of Diyala province. Multinational Forces Iraq identified the Sunni insurgents as the "Baqubah Guardians," however IraqSlogger reported the al-Ishreen Revolution Brigades (1920s Revolution Brigades) engaged in the fight. On the Shia terror group front, Coalition forces captured "a highly sought Special Groups weapons facilitator before dawn Thursday northeast of Baghdad." Three Special Groups operatives were killed and five others were captured during the raid. airforcepundit.blogspot.com   (2731 words)

 SparkNotes: Conservation of Energy: Conservative vs. Nonconservative Forces If a conservative force acts upon the particle during this closed loop, the velocity of the particle at the beginning and the end of the loop must be the same. During its fall, the force of gravity is in the same direction as the motion of the ball, and the gravitational force does positive work of magnitude mgh, accelerating ball until it reaches the ground with the same speed with which it left. On segment 2, the horizontal one, the force on the ball is always perpendicular to the motion of the ball, implying that the work done on the ball over this segment is zero. www.sparknotes.com /physics/workenergypower/conservationofenergy/section1.html   (1310 words)

 Potential Energy and Fields Once the velocity is established, the force required to keep the block moving at a constant speed is exactly equal and opposite to the force of the spring. Forces like the force of friction clearly do not meet this criteria because the direction of the friction force is always opposite from the direction of motion so the work of frictional forces is always negative. The force exerted on a particle is the negative of the rate of change of potential energy with respect to x. www.mcasco.com /p1pef.html   (2572 words)

 Work and energy Work can be either positive or negative: if the force has a component in the same direction as the displacement of the object experiencing the force, the force is doing positive work, but if the force has a component in the direction opposite to the displacement, the force does negative work. This force is the force of gravity, with a magnitude equal to mg, the weight of the object. The principle of the conservation of mechanical energy states that the total mechanical energy in a system (i.e., the sum of the potential plus kinetic energies) remains constant as long as the only forces acting are conservative forces. physics.bu.edu /~duffy/py105/notes/Energy.html   (958 words)

 Conservatives in the European Parliament - News Story - Conservative task force to help MG Rover and its suppliers   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-24) The task force scheme was devised by Caroline Spelman, the Shadow Local Government Secretary and MP for Meridan, and other prominent Conservatives who have been working closely with leading West Midlands industrialists. Confirming that an incoming Conservative government would match the Â£40 million aid and regeneration package pledged by the Blair government, Mrs Spelman told conservatives.com: "It is vital that we get in place a support package that recognises this fact and will help all those affected. Conservative Co-Chairman Liam Fox made clear that a Conservative government would tackle the decline in Britain's manufacturing base by easing the tax burden and reducing the bureaucratic red tape strangling the country's businesses. www.conservative-party.org.uk /meps/story.cfm?obj_id=121590   (515 words)

 Conservative and non-conservative force-fields Suppose that the frictional force acting on the object as it executes this leg is One thing that we know about a frictional force is that it is always directed in the opposite direction to the instantaneous direction of motion of the object upon which it acts. The fact that the net work is negative indicates that the frictional force continually drains energy from the object as it moves over the surface. farside.ph.utexas.edu /teaching/301/lectures/node59.html   (694 words)

 SignOnSanDiego.com > News > World -- Conservative lawmakers force vote on party leader's future LONDON – The future of Britain's embattled opposition leader was in doubt Tuesday after Conservative Party rebels cleared the way for a vote of confidence that could lead to the removal of Iain Duncan Smith. Many Conservative lawmakers are angry the party is still trailing in the polls, despite a slump in Blair's popularity and the government's troubles over the war in Iraq. Francis Maude was one of the few Conservative lawmakers to publicly urge a vote on Duncan Smith's leadership. www.signonsandiego.com /news/world/20031028-0639-britain-conservatives.html   (371 words)

 Potential Energy and Conservative Forces Conservative Forces are reversible forces, meaning that the work done by a conservative force is recoverable, i.e. When you apply an external agent to change the state of a system that is also acted upon by a conservative force then the system can be restored to its initial state without using any other external agent. Conservative Forces are path independent, in that the work done by the force to move an object between any two points is independent of the path taken. www.ac.wwu.edu /~vawter/PhysicsNet/Topics/Energy/PEandForces.html   (205 words)

Last check: 2007-10-24) It is an attempt to exercise the power of forcing the free men of this country into the ranks of an army, for the general purposes of war, under color of a military service. A free Government with arbitrary means to administer it is a contradiction; a free Government without adequate provision for personal security is an absurdity; a free Government, with an uncontrolled power of military conscription, is a solecism, at once the most ridiculous and abominable that ever entered into the head of man. The battles which he is to fight are the battles of invasion; battles which he detests perhaps and abhors, less from the danger and the death that gather over them, and the blood with which they drench the plain, than from the principles in which they have their origin. conservative-insurgent.blog-city.com   (3395 words)

 Conservative & Nonconservative Forces   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-24) Gravity is a conservative force, and there are many others. Elastic (Hooke's Law) forces, electric forces, etc. are conservative forces. Forces that do not store energy are called nonconservative or dissipative forces. www.batesville.k12.in.us /physics/PhyNet/Mechanics/Energy/stored_energy.htm   (184 words)

 Potential Energy Note: Since the work of a conservative force does not depend on the path the particle takes when going from its location at time 1 to its location at time 2, the work of a conservative force is path independent. Let the resultant work of all forces on a particle be separated into the work done by conservative forces and the work done by non-conservative forces as follows E is the sum of the kinetic energy and the potential energy of the conservative forces. em-ntserver.unl.edu /NEGAHBAN/EM373/note11/note.htm   (272 words)

 Physics 128 Lecture: Potential Energy and Conservation Two common forces that are conservative forces are the gravitational force and the spring force, (Hooke's Law). Because of the unique properties of conservative forces it is possible to define a given amount of work to every set of initial and final points. The work done on an object by a conservative force is equal to the difference between the initial and final potential energies. www.cord.edu /dept/physics/p128/lecture_16.html   (1004 words)

 Essay: How far is religion a radical or a conservative force? - Coursework.Info Some sociologists claim that religion acts as a conservative force, depending on the perspective this can be seen as a positive or negative affect for individuals and society. They claim that religion acts as a conservative force and that it is the changes in society that shape religion. Religion can be seen as a conservative force, in that religion prevents change and maintains status quo. www.coursework.info /A2_and_A-Level/Sociology/How_far_is_religion_a_radical_or_a_conservative_force_L39228.html   (293 words)

 Conservative   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-24) In other words, the work done by a force on an object is dependant only on the initial and final coordinates of the object. The work done by the force of gravity, electrostatic force, or the restoring force of a spring is always the same when going from one point to another, regardless of the path taken. This is an aspect of a conservative force. members.tripod.com /~sdwayne/Notes/chap4_3.html   (246 words)
