# Conservative Force (Path-Independent)

A force $F$ is conservative when the net work done by the force in moving an object over any closed path is zero. $∮F(r)⋅dr=0(conservative force)$ $∮F(x)⋅dx=0(conservative force in 1D)$

List of forces that are conservative:

A non-conservative force is non path-dependent, so if you walk a different path, you will obtain a different result.
