The Physics of Amusement Park RidesStreaming Video - 2005
Want to know where to sit on a roller coaster to get the biggest thrill? In this program, engineers use the principles of physics to design amusement park rides. Viewers will be catapulted along on a roller coaster, slammed into their seats, glued against a wall, shot down a luge course, and swung around on a hellacious ride they call "the corkscrew. As they go, they learn the relationship between kinetic and potential energy, vectors, speed, friction, and acceleration in an exciting real-world format.
