Created for Albert.io. All rights reserved 2016.

A very small marble is released from rest on a curved track, from the starting level shown in the diagram. It moves down the track and over the small 'bump' in the track and starts back up the other side of the track.

Assuming that friction and air resistance are negligible, what is the highest the marble moves up the other side of the track?

A

Above the starting level.

B

Exactly to the starting level.

C

A small distance below the starting level.

D

Significantly below the starting level.
