**Particle Dynamics: Conservative Force, work done, Power
**

Work done by a force:

Work done to move a particle from point 1 to point 2 ∫ ⃗ ⃗

Similarly, the work done to move the particle from point 2 back to point 1 is ∫ ⃗ ⃗

So the total work done on the closed path from 1 to 2 and back to 1, ∫ ⃗ ∫ ⃗ ⃗=∮ ⃗

Closed Curve:

Conservative Force: If the work done by the force ⃗ over a closed path is zero,

**the force ⃗ is called conservative force.

[Note: the integral ∮ is called cyclic integral.]

Now we apply Stoke’s law for a closed curve:

(2) ∮ ⃗ ⃗ ∫(⃗⃗ ⃗ ) ⃗, where ⃗ = ̂ is the vector surface area, meaning be the surface area enclosed by the closed curve and the direction ̂ is upward if the curve is traversed anticlockwise and it is downward if clockwise according to convention.

⃗ is arbitrary, we must have ⃗=0 (4)

The above equation (4) is a necessary and sufficient condition that has to be satisfied if the fore ⃗ is conservative. It is true for any vector. Equation (4) implies that we can write the force in the following way: ⃗⃗ , where is a scalar potential and the negative sign is by choice. We call potential energy. ⃗

In that case, ⃗ ⃗ is always positive, there is always some work done to overcome friction! (3) For dissipative or non-conservative forces, we can NOT write ⃗
