Homework Help: Mechanics: Dynamics project question

  1. Oct 21, 2009 #1
    Guys I really need some ideas or perhaps some reference to complete this report. It doesn't have to be too complicating I just need it done by today so I can concentrate on my finals. Hope u guys can help. THANKS!

    It is said that a particle X moves from an initial position P to a final position P' under the action of conservative forces.

    "the total work required is dependent upon the initial and final positions of the particle only and not on the path taken by the particle"

    This project involves designing an experiment to prove the validity of the above statement

    Ill appreciate it tons if u guys can tell me what are the relevant equations that are gonna be used for this and maybe some example experiments or links to references.
