Question #258961

If the force is given by F=2x-y+z)i+ x+y-z^2)j +3x-2y+4z)k find the work done by a moving particle around a closed path C in the xy plane. If the circle has centre at the origin and radius 3 . Is this work done path independent??

Expert's answer

**work done by a conservative force is independent of the path**; in other words, the work done by a conservative force is the same for any path connecting two points: The work done by a non-conservative force depends on the path taken.
