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.
