As shown in the figure above, a spring is attached horizontally to a vertical wall, and an object lies on a frictionless horizontal floor, attached to the other end of the spring. A man pulls the object so that the spring doubles in length, and then let the object go. Which of the following statements is/are true concerning this situation?
I. The force exerted by the spring on the object is a conservative force.
II. The potential energy in the spring is constant.
III. If no other force is applied after the man lets it go, the object will keep on moving back and forth.
A conservative force is
