# Cyclone Sam's CLOUDPOOFER 2000

## Circular Motion

• Circular Motion-is a movement of an object along the circumference of a circle or rotation along a circular path.
• Cyclone Sam exhibits circular motion. Cyclone Sam is an example of circular motion because, as you are strapped in and the ride starts, you move in a constant circle.
• Also, the ride exhibits straight line motion when it moves up and down.

## Acceleration

The ride Cyclone Sam starts out slow. As you move throughout the ride you gradually accelerate, going faster, and faster, staying at a consistent speed. Towards the ending of the ride it gradually gets slower.

## Forces

• Friction keeps you in your seat which effects the rider.
• Gravity pulls you down so that you stay in your seat, which effects the rider.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

• Gravity allows for the ride to move up, and down, and diagonal, and all over the place
• Applied Force is shown when they apply the brakes and you will jerk forward and stop

## Newton's 3rd Law

Newtons's 3rd Law states that for every action there is an equal but opposite reaction. So when I (Sam), am on the outside seat and Tori is sitting on the inside seat, when she is leaning and pushing the side of her body to mine I am also pushing on her.(Even though it doesn't feel like it.)
