Physics of Amusement park rides

timer Asked: Jun 10th, 2015

Question description

Hello, I am doing a physics assignment based off of amusement park rides. This particular ride involves a large raft that is taken up a conveyor after the loading station and then floats down a river with rapids. The question is "Assuming the speed of the raft at the top of the conveyor hill is the same as the speed before the hill, calculate the speed of the raft at the end of the trough just prior to entering the load/unload station." So, the speed after the whole ride, I'm guessing. The speed before the hill is 0.38125 m/s. and the duration of the ride is 290 s.
