a frictionless roller coaster car of mass m = 954 kg tops the first hill with speed v0 = 24.2 m/s at height h = 30.8 m. How much work does the gravitational force do on the car from that point to (a) point A. (same height)
The Attempt at a Solution
One question is baffling me, do I need to include kinetic energy when calculating using the change of gravitational potential energy? Does it mean that question (a), work does by the gravitational force is zero ?
