Sample roller coaster problem anna litical is riding on the demon at great america anna experiences a downward acceleration of 156 m/s 2 at the top of the loop and an upward acceleration of 263 m/s 2 at the bottom of the loop. The roller coaster problem a roller coaster ride begins with an engine hauling a train of cars up to the top of a steep slope and releasing them from this point on the train is powered by gravity alone and the ride can be analysed by using the fact that as the train drops in elevation, its potential energy is converted into kinetic energy. The first hill of a roller coaster is always the highest point of the roller coaster because friction and drag immediately begin robbing the car of energy at the top of the first hill, a car's energy is almost entirely gravitational potential energy (because its velocity is zero or almost zero.
