    roller coasters roller coasters Presentation Transcript

    • Roller Coasters
    • 1912
      marks the year John
      Miller designed the first
      Under friction roller coaster
    • these colossal, twisted structures provide an
      exhilarating and frenetic ride. They wed technology
      to basic and seemingly incompatible emotions,
      such as panic, courage, fear, joy, vertigo, and
      amusement. Built as if to exclusively prove
      Newton's theories, the science of roller coasters
      abounds with all his terminology: acceleration,
      mass, gravity, movement, and inertia. But in
      all this, what is really thrilling is the free
      fall, the attraction of the abyss.
    • Safety Details
      The designers of these extreme machines take into
      account all possible safety factors to provide as safe
      an experience as possible. Riders are made to wear safety
      belts, and machine parts are inspected on a regular basis to
      prevent accidents. Joints and beams are X-rayed for flaws.
      Safety devices applied to the drive chain before cars reach
      the top prevent the train of cars from moving backward.
      These devices are also installed on some of the hills, where
      the train slows down in its climb. In the event of wind gusts
      and sudden decelerations, these preventive measures keep
      the train in place and stop it from backtracking
    • Wheels to keep the trolley on the track
      Three types of wheels are needed: upper wheels to control the
      train for most of the route; lower ones for use on the hills—G
      forces are sometimes greater than the weight of the train; and
      lateral wheels to prevent the train from derailing on curves..
    • Force ofGravity in Action
      Most of the motion in a roller-coaster ride is a
      response to the Earth's gravitational pull. No engines
      are mounted on the cars. After the train reaches the
      top of the first slope—the highest point on the ride—
      the train rolls downhill and gains speed under the
      Earth's gravitational pull. The speed is sufficient for it
      to climb over the next hill. This process occurs over and
      over again until all the train's energy has been lost to
      friction and the train of cars slows to a stop. If no
      energy were lost to friction, the train would be able to
      keep running as long as no point on the track was
      higher than the first peak.
      When the wagon
      reaches the highest
      point of the roller
      coaster, it has a great deal
      of potential energy.
      At a certain point in the
      trajectory, both energies
      (potential and kinetic)
      cancel each other out
      is energy of motion that is, the energy
      released by the train
      every time it descends.
