Extreme physics

Your pulse quickens, your stomach churns, your eyes water, your heart rate increases, you lose all sense of time and space. You cannot tell which way is up, down or sideways. The effect of riding roller coasters is tremendous, and the effects and mechanics are all about physics! Research the forces and pulls that contribute to the excitement of riding a roller coaster. While you have your research cap on, be sure to investigate the fathers of physics: Sir Issac Newton and Albert Einstein. Write a report to share with your class about what you have learned. Then share some of the most extreme facts here on the NIE Blogging Zone.
