Optional Practical: Loop the loop

IB Physics: Optional Practical: Loop the loop

This practical is an investigation into the motion of a toy car travelling in a vertical circle (looping the loop) on a plastic track.At the top of the track the car has potential energy, as it travels down this PE will be converted into kinetic energy which will be a maximum at the bottom of the slope. As the car climbs the loop this some of this KE will be converted back into PE but the car must retain enough KE so...
