Roller Coaster Physics

Dekia Hodges, Carlos Garcia, Tonnecia Miller, Javan North

Lab Description

In this lab we analyzed centripetal force by building roller coasters, showing how the force and size of the loops affected the car when moving in circular motion. We had to make sure the car built enough momentum before going through each loop, because the affects of gravity made it more difficult for the car to keep going.
