Have you ever stopped in amazement seeing how fast Roller Coasters can go? If so, then you may have been tempted to gain the courage to try it out.
If you want to know all about this well known amusement park ride then continue reading to find out more.
Roller Coasters are a very popular ride which looks looks similar to a train. They are extremely fast and intense.
Roller Coasters were first invented by the Russians in the 16th and 17th century and they were called Ice slides. Roller coasters were originally simple slides, but have become more complex since then.
Sir Isaac Newton had wrote these three laws of motion:
1. The law of inertia “an object at rest will remain at rest unless acted on by an unbalanced force. An object in motion will continue in motion with the same speed and the same direction unless acted on by an unbalanced force”
2. Acceleration “Acceleration is produced when a force acts on a mass. The greater the mass (of the object being accelerated)”
3. Action “For every reaction there is an equal and opposite reaction”
Roller Coasters can be exciting and extreme, but the one thing that makes this possible is force. Force is very important when it comes to Roller Coasters. One force is called zero-G. This force stands for zero gravity. That’s why they call one Roller Coaster G-force – gravity force!
A lot of scares are in a Roller Coaster – going backwards, loops, going fast. You may think that going fast with loops might go fast because of fun and lots of thrills, but it’s actually there for a reason.
Get a bucket of water. Try to swing it 360 degrees and do it slowly. All the water will fall out. Now, fill it again and swing 360 degrees really fast. All the water will stay in!
I hope you found out enough about Roller Coasters!!!
