In Potential Energy and Conservation of Energy , any transition between kinetic and potential energy conserved the total energy of the system.
Conservative vs. NonConservative Forces
Practical implications — The practical behaviour of follower forces involving: aerodynamic drag; engine thrust; cantilever pipe conveying fluid; gas turbine rotor; automatic control system application; and automobile disk brakes can be monitored more successfully.

A conservative force is a force with the property that the total work done in moving a particle between two points is independent of the path taken. A conservative force depends only on the position of the object. If a force is conservative, it is possible to assign a numerical value for the potential at any point and conversely, when an object moves from one location to another, the force changes the potential energy of the object by an amount that does not depend on the path taken, contributing to the mechanical energy and the overall conservation of energy. If the force is not conservative, then defining a scalar potential is not possible, because taking different paths would lead to conflicting potential differences between the start and end points. Gravitational force is an example of a conservative force, while frictional force is an example of a non-conservative force. Other examples of conservative forces are: force in elastic spring, electrostatic force between two electric charges, and magnetic force between two magnetic poles.
Nonconservative current-induced forces: A physical interpretation
Work is done by a force, and some forces, such as weight, have special characteristics. A conservative force is one, like the gravitational force, for which work done by or against it depends only on the starting and ending points of a motion and not on the path taken. For example, when you wind up a toy, an egg timer, or an old-fashioned watch, you do work against its spring and store energy in the spring. We treat these springs as ideal, in that we assume there is no friction and no production of thermal energy. This stored energy is recoverable as work, and it is useful to think of it as potential energy contained in the spring. Indeed, the reason that the spring has this characteristic is that its force is conservative. That is, a conservative force results in stored or potential energy.
If the work done by a force depends not only on initial and final positions, but also on the path between them, the force is called a non-conservative force. Example:.
8.3: Conservative and Non-Conservative Forces
This article is part of the Thematic Series "Transport through molecular junctions". Guest Editor: J. We give a physical interpretation of the recently demonstrated nonconservative nature of interatomic forces in current-carrying nanostructures. We start from the analytical expression for the curl of these forces, and evaluate it for a point defect in a current-carrying system. We obtain a general definition of the capacity of electrical current flow to exert a nonconservative force, and thus do net work around closed paths, by a formal noninvasive test procedure.

We obtain a general definition of the capacity of electrical current flow to exert a nonconservative force, and thus do net work around closed paths, by a formal noninvasive test procedure. Second, we show that the gain in atomic kinetic energy over time, generated by nonconservative current-induced forces, is equivalent to the uncompensated stimulated emission of directional phonons. This connection with electron—phonon interactions quantifies explicitly the intuitive notion that nonconservative forces work by angular momentum transfer.
