Using a Model Roller Coaster to Investigate Potential and Kinetic Energies

Unit 5: Work and Energy
Lesson 9 of 15

Objective: Students will demonstrate their understanding of the connections between mathematical models of kinetic and potential energy and roller coaster design.

Big Idea: The conservation of energy can be used to determine the velocity, height, kinetic energy or potential energy of a roller coaster without direct measurement.
