In other words the total amount of energy remains constant. On a roller coaster energy changes from potential to kinetic and back again many times over and over the course of the ride. Kinetic energy is energy that an object has because of its motion. All moving objects possess kinetic energy which is determined by the mass and speed of the

• ### Potential Kinetic EnergyRoller Coaster Physics

Kinetic energy can also be transferred back to potential energy if there is a second hill. Without one of the two energies the roller coaster wouldn t be able to function and not move at all. Together these two types of energy make the roller coaster move fast and make the rides fun like this roller coaster

• ### Roller Coaster Physics HowStuffWorks

When the coaster ascends one of the smaller hills that follows the initial lift hill its kinetic energy changes back to potential energy. In this way the course of the track is constantly converting energy from kinetic to potential and back again. This fluctuation in acceleration is what makes roller

The energy of the roller coaster cars will continue to change from potential to kinetic energy and vice versa as the cars ascend and descend the hills. Due to frictional losses the total energy only decreases throughout the ride therefore the maximum hill the cars can

• ### Amusement Park Physics Home Science Tools Learning Center

When the roller coaster comes down the hill its potential energy is converted into kinetic energy. When the coaster moves down a hill and starts its way up a new hill the kinetic energy changes back to potential energy until it is released again when the coaster travels down the hill it just climbed.
