A force is said to be conservative if the work done by the force in moving a particle from one point to another point depends only on the initial and final points and not on the path followed. The field where the conservative force is observed is known as a conservative field.

## Which of the following electric fields are conservative?

The conservative nature of electrostatic fields establishes **the electrostatic field** as a conservative field. This opens the door for conservation of energy and the work-kinetic energy theorem in discussions of electric fields and electric forces.

## How can you say that electric field is conservative in nature?

We can prove that electric field is conservative in nature by **taking line integration of the electric field along a close path which will be always zero** thus the we will get that electric field does not depends on path but depends on the point which will be given.

## Is electric field always conservative in nature?

The **electrostatic field** or **electric field** due to charges is **conservative** but the **electric field** induced due to time varying magnetic **field** is non-**conservative in nature**. Induced **electric field** forms closed loops. Work done by force due to induced **electric field** in a closed loop is not zero.

## Which of the following are conservative fields?

A vector **field** F ( x , y ) textbf{F}(x, y) F(x,y)start bold text, F, end bold text, left parenthesis, x, comma, y, right parenthesis is called a **conservative** vector **field** if it satisfies any one of the **following** three properties (all of which are defined within the article):

## What is meant by conservative electric field?

The electric field is defined as the electric force per unit charge. … A force is said to be conservative **if the work done by the force in moving a particle from one point to another point depends only on the initial and final points and not on the path followed**.

## Why electric field is non conservative?

Assuming you know that induced electric fields form closed loops, **the charge moving in the loop with electric field always parallel to its displacement will do a non zero work**, unlike conservative forces where work done in a closed loop is zero. Hence induced electric fields are non conservative.

## What is conservative field give examples Class 12?

Examples of conservative forces are **sum of kinetic and potential energies working on a body, spring and gravitational force**, coulomb force between two stationary charges, etc. Work done in moving an object from one point to another depends only on the initial and final positions and is independent of the path taken.

## Can electric field be Nonconservative?

Specifically, the induced electric field is nonconservative because it does net work in moving a charge over a closed path, whereas the **electrostatic field is conservative** and does no net work over a closed path.

## What is the nature of electric field?

Electric fields point **straight outward from positive charges and straight inward on negative charges**. This is described by Gauss’ law. If we had a single point charge, say positive charge, the fields would extend in all directions outward from the charge.

## Is electric force conservative?

The **electrostatic or Coulomb force is conservative**, which means that the work done on q is independent of the path taken, as we will demonstrate later. This is exactly analogous to the gravitational force. When a force is conservative, it is possible to define a potential energy associated with the force.

## What is meant by conservative field?

In vector calculus, a conservative vector field is a vector field that is the gradient of some function. Conservative vector fields have **the property that the line integral is path independent**; the choice of any path between two points does not change the value of the line integral.

## What is electric field intensity?

**A measure of the force exerted by one charged body on another**. Imaginary lines of force or electric field lines originate (by convention) on positive charges and terminate on negative charges.
