Roller Coaster Conclusion

The purpose of this unit is to learn about Kinetic and Potential energy, and then be able to apply that knowledge to a model and roller coasters. Here are the two learning goals you will be graded on:

Learning Goal #7: Analyze data to describe the relationship between an object’s mass, speed, and kinetic energy.

Learning Goal #8: Use a model to describe how distance affects the potential energy between objects.

Do you feel that you understand these? If so, work INDEPENDENTLY on the two conclusion questions. If you do not feel ready to answer them, (1) review your notes, (2) watch a few more videos on KE & PE, and (3) seek help from a strong peer and teacher(s). You can do it!
