Slides in Energy In A Skate Park
1. The Potential Energy and the Kinetic Energy increases
2. The higher the POSITION of the skater, the more potential energy which is then transformed into kinetic energy
1. The total amount of energy does not change
2. The green bar that represents total energy is always the same height
In this simulation, there is no friction to slow the skater down
Some of the potential and kinetic energy is transformed into thermal energy due to friction. Eventually, the skateboarder stops due to friction.
