Potential energy is: a) the energy of position: it exists for nonconservative forces. b) the energy of position: it exists for conservative forces. c) the energy of motion: its formula is PE = (1 / 2) mv 2 . d) the energy of position: its formula is PE = (1 / 2) mv 2 . e) heat energy. 008 qmult 00110 2 1 3 moderate memory: paths and a conservative force 2. The work done by a conservative force on an object while the object moves on a path between two endpoints is: a) INDEPENDENT of the path and endpoints. b) DEPENDENT on the path. c) INDEPENDENT of the path between the endpoints. d) DEPENDENT on the path, but NOT on the endpoints. e) equal to the path length. 008 qmult 00120 1 4 1 easy deductomemory: general potential energy formula 3.
