  2. 7.1. Conservative & Non-conservative Forces F is conservative if for every closed path C. WBA+WAB = 0  WAB =  WBA = WAB WAB i.e., is path-independent WBA WAB F is non-conservative if there is a closed path C such that  Mathematica is path-dependent

  3. Example: Work done on climber by gravity Going up: W1 = ( m g ) h =  m g h Going down: W2 = ( m g ) ( h) = m g h Round trip: W = W1 + W2 = 0 Horizontal displacement requires no work. Gravity is conservative.

  4. Example: Work done on trunk by friction Going right: W1 = ( m g ) L =  m g L Going left: W2 = (  m g ) ( L) =   m g L Round trip: W = W1 + W2 =  2  m g L  0 Friction is non-conservative.

  5. GOT IT? 7.1. If it takes the same amount of work to push a trunk across a rough floor as it does to lift a weight to the same distance straight upward. How do the amounts of work compare if the trunk & weight are moved along curved paths between the same starting & end points? Ans. Work is greater for the trunk.

  6. 7.2. Potential Energy Conservative force: Potential energy = stored work =  ( work done by force ) Note: only difference of potential energy matters. 1-D case: Constant F:

  7. Gravitational Potential Energy Horizontal component of path does not contribute. Vertical lift:  m g

  8. Elastic Potential Energy x0 = equilibrium position Ideal spring: Let  parabolic U is always positive Setting x0 = 0 : x x0 x = x0 x x0

  10. Example 7.5. Spring & Gravity A 50-g block is placed against a spring at the bottom of a frictionless slope. The spring has k = 140 N/m and is compressed 11 cm. When the block is released, how high up the slope does it rise? Initial state: Final state: 

  11. Example 7.6. Sliding Block A block of mass m is launched from a spring of constant k that is compressed a distance x0. The block then slides on a horizontal surface of frictional coefficient . How far does the block slide before coming to rest? Initial state: Launch: Work done against friction: Final state:  Conservation of energy :

  13. Example 7.7. H2 Near the bottom of the potential well of H2, U = U0 + a ( x x0 )2 , where U0= 0.760 aJ, a = 286 aJ / nm2 , x0 = 0.0741 nm. ( 1 aJ = 1018 J ) What range of atomic separation is allowed if the total energy is 0.717 aJ? Turning points: 
