Fall 2010 Oklahoma State University PHYS2014: Benton Lecture 12, Slide 4 Conservative Force: a) The net work done in moving a mass between two points depends only on the location of the points relative to one another, not on the particular path followed. b) The net work done in moving a mass through any closed loop (round- trip) path is zero. 0 F ds = a a Nonconservative Force: The net work done in moving a mass between two points depends on the particular path, e.g. due to friction, drag, etc. Δ h Δ h °

Fall 2010 Oklahoma State University PHYS2014: Benton Lecture 12, Slide 5 Potential energy is always associated with a conservative force. Friction and Drag (air resistance) are examples of nonconservative forces . • The energy lost (work done) by nonconservative forces is lost from the system. ..usually in the form of heat . • The energy lost (work done) by conservative forces is still in the system and can be recovered. Conservative and Nonconservative Forces

Oklahoma State University PHYS2014: Benton Lecture 12, Slide 6 A 50 kg ice skater is gliding along the ice, heading due north at 4.0 m/s. The ice has a small coefficient of static friction that prevents the skater from slipping sideways, but μ k =0. Suddenly, a wind from the northeast exerts a force of 4.0 N on the skater. a) Use work and energy to find the skater’s speed after gliding 100 m in this wind. b) What is the minimum value of s that allows her to continue moving straight north? m
