Question: Which vector field is conservative? I added two pictures of the vector fields in the paint document. So far the only things I know about conservative vector fields are.. 1. Net change is 0 for a closed path 2.there is some function f such that F = ∇f (F being the conserv. vector field) 3. Net change is independent of the path 4. Energy is always conserved I dont know how to apply the top four facts to a picture of a vector field. So how can I determine if they fields are conservative?
