u = mgh Potential Energy, Path Independent ±± h W = F ± · d±s = mgdz = mgh 0 Note: Elastic systems are conservative. Plastic deformation is not conservative. EX: Springs Energy = 1 / 2 2 ± δ ± δ 1 W = Pdδ = kδdδ = 2 2 00 Stored Energy = Work Put In U = W What if the spring were stretched a little further? 2
