You use flight manuvers as examples of a "non-conservative" force.

Almost wish I weren't joking. We were working on conservative and non-conservative forces in emag. A conservative force is one where it does not matter the path you take between to points, the energy used is the same. Conversely a non-conservative force is one where the path you take between two points determines the energy required.

Post your signs of Il-2 addiction here.
