DLD08 - Energy Transfer, Loop-the-Loop


- To show energy transfer or energy exchange from potential to kinetic, repeated every half loop.


DLD08 - Energy Transfer, Loop-the-Loop


The incline is adjusted until the velocity of the ball rolling down is just sufficient to carry it completely around the vertical loop without falling away from the track as it passes the top position.
