Conservation of Energy

Applet shows the motion of a car on a curve. Losses of energy due to frictional forces have been ignored in presenting the behavior of the car. Besides energy conservation ideas,  some dynamics of circular motion ideas also get highlighted. The car starts with negligible velocity from the initial position. The dots on the path should help to relate to changes in the velocity of the car as it moves along the path.
