• Q6
What happens to the magnitude of mechanical energy (ME) as an object converts energy between potential and kinetic energy.
ME decreases
ME stays the same (conserved)
ME increases
ME changes exponentially as position changes

• Q9
Where will mechanical energy be the highest?
It's the same at all points.
W - highest point on coaster
X - highest velocity
Z - End of the ride

• Q10
What does conservation of energy mean?
Energy converts between potential and kinetic (if not lost due to friction).
Kinetic energy carries the potential
Everything is lost to friction or air resistance so nothing is saved.
Potential saves the kinetic energy
