Question: Many roller coasters function by mechanically transporting the cars up a large incline. The cars then roll down and up a series of hills, turns, and spirals until the cars come to rest at the passenger loading station. At which point will the roller coaster have the greatest amount of gravitational potential energy?

The roller coaster will have the greatest amount of gravitational potential energy at the highest point of the track, which is typically the top of the first large incline right after the cars are mechanically transported up. This is because gravitational potential energy is directly related to the object's height from the ground - the higher the object is, the greater its gravitational potential energy.
