The effect of some forces can be expressed as a Potential Energy: e.g., gravity, elastic forces produced by springs (later) These forces are said to be Conservative . They have the property that the work done depends only on the starting and ending points, not the path taken while the force is being applied. The work done by some other forces depends on the path taken: e.g., friction. Under the action of these forces, mechanical energy is lost.
