The Physics Classroom: Energy Transformation on a Roller Coaster covers the same topic as The Physics Classroom: Energy Transformation for Downhill Skiing
relation created by Bruce Mason

This item is an animation of a skier descending a slope and encountering the force of friction at the end of the run.  It contains four energy bar graphs depicting KE, PE, Work, and TME (Total Mechanical Energy).  It differs from the Roller Coaster animation in that it illustrates a system where TME is lost due to friction.
