1000kg rollercoaster starts from point A on a frictionless track with the profile shown below.
c) Determine the rollercoaster's speed at point B? <-- the point on the loop itself
Will it work if I apply Conservation of Energy, being:
from A, Ek is 0 (Starting point).
0 + (m)(g)(hA) = 1/2(m)(vB)^2 + (m)(g)(hB)?
Will this equation work, even though it is at a loop? See attachment for the picture.
