    Do you know what conservative force is?

    Head up: Magnetic + Friction are not conservative. Gravity is. Not sure about electric I think its not.

    thanks i thought it was gravity just needed confirmation

    then how do you possibly intend to answer that question?! :-/.. don't you think you need to learn about it?

    yea.. friction is the answer.. but conservative force is a beautiful concept.. so i thought you might be interested in learning .. even i didn't know magnetic force was not conservative :D

    yep. Magnetic force is not conservative either. A brilliant lecture supplement by MIT ocw illustrates this beautifully: http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/physics/8-02-electricity-and-magnetism-spring-2002/lecture-notes/lecsup41.pdf

    @Mashy I'm not sure what it is... Reviewing it as we speak! But I know that magnetic interaction is not conservative...

    no no.. i was wrong.. i thought magnetic interaction was conservative.. btu yes you are right.. its not :)
