How Newton's Laws are Applied
Newton's Second Law isn't as obvious. When the roller coaster shoots out, we had to add more speed because of how heavy the roller coaster is. Without the extra speed the coaster would barely move.
Newton's Third Law comes into play at the very end of the ride. The ride slows down at the end, so you don't go around a second time. When it does slow down, an equal reaction happens. Your body jerks forward, but you hit the bars. When you hit the bars, you fly back into your seat, which is an equal and opposite reaction.
