- 1. Roller CoasterPhysics &History<br />By: Ben Dworecki<br />
- 2. What I will talk about<br />
- 3. Physics<br />Gravity:<br />The force that moves the train.<br />Potential Energy:<br />The amount of energy stored as the train increases in height.. <br />http://ffden-2.phys.uaf.edu/211_fall2002.web.dir/shawna_sastamoinen/roller_coasters.htm<br />
- 4. Physics Cont’d<br />http://ffden-2.phys.uaf.edu/211_fall2002.web.dir/shawna_sastamoinen/roller_coasters.htm<br />Velocity:<br />The rate in which the train changes position. <br />Kinetic Energy:<br />The energy contained because of its motion.<br />K=½mv²<br />
- 5. Physics contd.<br />Friction:<br />Causes the train to slow down<br />Centripetal Acceleration<br />The force that you feel when you go through twists, turns, and loops (G- Forces)<br />http://ffden-2.phys.uaf.edu/211_fall2002.web.dir/shawna_sastamoinen/roller_coasters.htm<br />
- 6. G-Forces (Centripetal Forces)<br />Positive G’s:<br />When the body feels heavier<br />Bottom of hills, turns, loops, and twists<br />Negative G’s:<br />When the body feels weightless<br />Top of hills with narrow top, or bunny hops.<br />http://ffden-2.phys.uaf.edu/211_fall2002.web.dir/shawna_sastamoinen/roller_coasters.htm<br />
- 7. http://adventure.howstuffworks.com/roller-coaster7.htm<br />
- 8. G-forces affect on the body-Positive<br />Positive G’s make your body feel 2x’s your body weight<br />160 lbs<br />2 G’s= 320<br />3 G’s= 640<br />The body can not handle over 8 G’s<br />Black outs<br />“Black outs are the worse thing for you, your head goes blank and if your out too long there is a possibility of death” (Sean Tucker, Aerobics pilot, Discovery Chanel) <br />http://ffden-2.phys.uaf.edu/211_fall2002.web.dir/shawna_sastamoinen/roller_coasters.htm<br />
- 9. G-forces affect on the body-Negative<br />Negative G’s makes your body feel weightless<br />Float above your seat<br />Bunny hops<br />Steepest drop<br /> No real restriction on negative G’s<br />Only nausea<br />http://ffden-2.phys.uaf.edu/211_fall2002.web.dir/shawna_sastamoinen/roller_coasters.htm<br />
- 10. Types of roller coasters<br />Sit down<br />Seated in a train<br />Suspension<br />Feet dangling<br />http://adventure.howstuffworks.com/roller-coaster8.htm<br />
- 11. Types of roller coasters cont’d<br />Stand up<br />Standing on the train<br />Flying<br />Superman style<br />http://adventure.howstuffworks.com/roller-coaster8.htm<br />
- 12. History of Roller Coasters<br />Russia in the 1600’s<br />Made of ice<br />Used sleds<br />Ice<br />Wood<br />America 1884<br />Made by railway companies to increase business on the weekends.<br />http://www.essortment.com/all/historyrollerc_puc.htm<br />
- 13. History cont’d.<br />1884, first gravity roller coaster<br />Coney Island, New York<br />1898, first loop<br />Too strong of forces<br />http://www.essortment.com/all/historyrollerc_puc.htm<br />
- 14. History cont’d<br /><ul><li>1929, roller coasters put on hold
- 15. The Great Depression</li></ul>1950, first steel roller coaster<br />Two steel tubes used as the track<br />Larger lighter steel tubes used for support<br />http://www.ultimaterollercoaster.com/news/archives/2002/<br />http://www.essortment.com/all/historyrollerc_puc.htm<br />
- 16. History Cont’d<br /><ul><li>1975, first looped roller coaster</li></ul>Magic Mountain, Cali.<br />2002, roller coaster hits 104 mph and heights up to 420 ft.<br />http://www.essortment.com/all/historyrollerc_puc.htm<br />
