Physics-Please check

posted by .

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