In this note we review recent progress about fluctuation relations and their applicability to free energy recovery in single molecule experiments. We underline the importance of the operational definition for the mechanical work and the non‐invariance of fluctuation relations under Galilean transformations, both aspects currently amenable to experimental test. Finally we describe a generalization of the Crooks fluctuation relation useful to recover free energies of partially equilibrated states and thermodynamic branches.
