Forces Applied to the Rider
Forces Applied to the Ride
The ride remains at rest until its pulled up by the belt, due to inertia. A heavier rider would mean that the ride has to exert more force on the cart than if a lighter person rode it Newton’s second law explains this. As the lego person sits on the seat the seat pushes back up on him with the same amount of force which exhibits Newton’s third law.
