Homework Help: Physics-Please check my answer-I've been working o

Posted by Sheila on Tuesday, January 11, 2011 at 6:37pm.

If I went tubing with my little sister, and I have a larger mass, why would we both reach, in terms of energy, the bottom of the hill at the same time;

Originally I thought because we would both be accerlerating at the same rate but that doesn't explain the energy part does it?

But then I think it would be because the TE(top) of the hill = TE(bottom of hill) and when you set that equation up, mass drops out, correct?
