PHYSICS
Asked by Alicia

Explain how the conservation of energy applies to a skier at the top of a mountain?

At a height, an object has potential energy. As it slips to the ground the potential energy is mostly converted to the Kinetic energy or his speed increases. A very small part of potential energy is lost to friction( As ice hardly has any friction)
