# A roller-coaster car of mass 1.50 × 10 3 kg is initially at the top of a rise at point . It then moves 35.0 m at an angle of 50.0° below the horizontal to a lower point . (a) Find both the potential energy of the system when the car is at points and and the change in potential energy as the car moves from point to point , assuming y = 0 at point . (b) Repeat part (a), this time choosing y = 0 at point , which is another 15.0 m down the same slope from point .
