The roller-coaster car shown in Fig. 6-41 (h1 = 50 m, h2 = 13 m, h3 = 25 m), is dragged up to point 1 where it is released from rest. Assuming no friction, calculate the speed at points 2, 3, and 4.

2. Relevant equations

v_{2}= Square Root of 2*Gravity*Height

3. The attempt at a solution

I used the formula to figure out the speed at point 2( which was 31.304 m/s) but it doesn't seem like the same formula works for points 3 and 4 so I'm guessing I need another formula to figure out the other 2 points, although I have no clue what that might be.
