can you help me check if these two statements are true?
1. work done by non-dissipative force is independent of the path that it takes ( ie: gravity)
2. work done by dissipative force is dependent of the path that it takes (ie: friction)

Huge thanks!

True. Although the convention is to call them conservative and non conservative forces.
