On a waterslide, describe the kinetic and potential energy you have at the top of the hill and at the bottom of the slide. What effect does friction have on you throughout the ride?

(1) Answers

You would have potential energy getting ready to slide down the slide, which is converted to kinetic energy when you let go and slide.  Friction would be slowing you down, but not as much as it normally would without the water.
