Straight-line motion is the major motion in our ride because it processed in a straight line through out the ride except for the loops and corkscrews. There can also be circular motion because in one point in the ride you spiral around in a cave.


One force that affects the ride that is gravity because gravity will pull the weight of the cart down during the hill and will cause it to go faster. One other force that affects the ride is an unbalanced force because the speed of the cart makes the cart go down one side of a hill.

The picture above roughly shows what the inside of the cave looks like. The red line represents the track.

Newton's 1st Law

Newton's 1st Law states "an object at rest stays at rest unless acted upon by an unbalanced force" and the ride is at rest until the mechanic hits the button to make the cart shoot forward. Newton's 1st Law also states "an object in motion stays in motion unless acted upon by an unbalanced force" and the ride stays in motion throughout the whole ride until the end when the brakes are applied.

Newton's 2nd Law

Newton's 2nd Law states "the heavier an abject is , the more force you will need to move that object" and the more people in the cart, the slower it will go up the hills. In other words, the more weight there is in the cart the more force it will take to move up the hills.

Newton's 3rd Law

Newton's 3rd Law states "for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction" and the bars and seat belt holding the riders in is the opposite but equal reaction. The rider pushes against the bar and the bar pushes back on the rider keeping the rider in his/her seat.
