The purpose of this project is to learn more about Isacc Newton's three Laws of Motion.#1.An object at rest stays at rest unless acted on by an outside force, an object in motion stays in motion in a straight line unless acted on by an outside force. #2.Acceleration of an object depends on mass of the object and the size of nets force applied. #3.When a force applies to an object the object exerts an equal force in the opposite direction. We are supposed to build a coaster on a website,draw it ,and then give a presentation.
There are four roles in this project. The first role is the historian. They find out the history of roller coasters. Next there is the design engineer. They find out what materials are used and how the materials changed. Then there is the physist. They figure out how roller coasters are tested and the height of hills verses loops. Finally, there is the lawyer which is the part I did. I had to find out the laws and regulations for parks and rides.
The outcome of the project was pretty good but it took some time to get the coaster right.
This is my rolller coaster that failed because I had to much energy.
This is my roller coaster that succeded because it had the amount of speed to make it up the hill and stop when it was supposed to.
Finally, my group's roller coaster which is called the Scream X. If you would like to try out the coaster creator click HERE.
