In my book it is talking about conservation forces and work energy theorem.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In the book it said....

"suppose gravitational potential energy alone does work (constant force)

*Then Wnet = Wg ......... ending statement Ef = Ei....

My question.... Does the work energy theorem only deal with conservation forces??? Because why would they say if this is the only force (being a conservation force) then it equals Wnet...?
