a 1000kg roller coaster car is initially at to of a rise, a point A. it then moves 135ft, at an angle of 40degrees below the horizontal, to a lower point B. choose the car at point B to be zero configuration for gravitational potential energy of the roller coaster-Earth system. find the potential energy of the system when the car is at points A and B and the change in potential energy as the car moves.
The Attempt at a Solution
i tried to do 1000*9.8*135
i do not get the right answer. can someone please guide me through step by step how to solve this question. help would be appreciated thx.
