Dear Vikas

In a simple way you can define

"If the work done by a force depends only on the initial and final states and not on the path taken, then it is a conservative force."

Examples of conservative force

1 force of gravity
2 coulomb's force in electrostatics
3 the elastic force in a spring

Please feel free to post as many doubts on our discussion forum as you can.

conservative forces are those in which the work done does not depend on path... eg gravitational forces are conservative in nature.... as if we lift a block directly to the building the work done in this case is same as we lift a block through stairs....

a ball is dropped on the ground from a height 10cm .if coifficient of restitution is 0.4, then find the height to which ball is rebound ?
Final velocity would be, v = root( 0 + 2g*10/100) = > root(2) m/s. From coeff. of restitution, v’ = ev = > 0.4*v Now let h be the height it rebounced then, 0^2 = (0.4v)^2 – 2gh h =...
