Lift Hill

The lift hill is a straight element whose vertical angle is required to be positive. The speed up the hill is specified by the user. This speed will also be used in the previous joint, and in the following joint until it has passed the crest of the hill. The lift hill input parameters are shown below, along with the values used in this example. Note that the vertical angle is not specified, as it was set by the previous joint.
\item Vertical Angle --- $30$ \item {\em Height} --- $125$ \item {\em Speed} --- $4$\end{itemize}\end{spacing}
