Difference between Conservative and Nonconservative Forces


Distinguish, differentiate, compare and explain what is the difference between Conservative and Nonconservative Forces. Comparison and Differences.

Difference between Conservative and Nonconservative Forces

1. The work done by a conservative force does not depend on the trajectory whereas the work done by a non-conservative force depends on the trajectory.

2. In conservative forces, the potential energy function can be defined, for examples: Gravity, spring. In non-conservative forces, the potential energy function cannot be defined for examples: Kinetic friction.

3. There is no network done in a closed loop by the conservative force while in non-conservative there is network done in a closed loop.

4. In conservative force, the kinetic energy is conserved on returning to the same position each time. In non-conservative force, kinetic energy is lost on returning to the same position each time.

5. Conservative force does equal work between two points, irrespective of its path. Non-conservative force does more work over longer distances.
