Explanation:

A: you hit the switch that knocks a domino down to start the track potential-kinetic
B: the dominoes go up the stairs then back down the stairs potential to kinetic
C: the dominoes curve around goes up the stairs and back down kinetic to greater kinetic to lower kinetic to higher kinetic
D: the dominoes curve around kinetic to lower kinetic
E: the dominoes go straight then up the stairs and stops kinetic to potential
F: the ball is hit by the dominoes the ball own a ramp and hits more dominoes and then the ball stops potential to kinetic to potential
G: the dominoes hit the circle which makes the dominoes stop the circle then trigger the other dominoes kinetic to potential to kinetic
H: the dominoes then go and hit a trigger to trigger the marble kinetic to potential to kinetic
I: the rocket is then shot off by a marble hitting a trigger on the bottom of the station to make the rocket fly potential to kinetic
J: the rocket hits the computer that is a sleep and turns it on kinetic to potential to kinetic

Explanation:


A. the ball goes down the ramp from potential to kinetic energy.
B. the ball hits the dominoes and the dominoes fall creating kinetic energy.
C. the dominoes hit the car putting the car in motion.
D. the car hits the ball going from potential to kinetic.
E. the ball rolls down the ramp.
F. the ball flies from the ramp.
G. The ball hits the dominoes.
H. the dominoes fall onto the laptop.
