Force & Motion
Park Physics: What are the forces behind the fun?
This site created by the Annenberg Foundation and the Corporation
for Public Broadcasting uses amusement park rides to discuss basic
physics concepts of forces and motion. Follow the “Design a
Roller Coaster” link in the roller coaster section for more
insight into the physics of roller coaster safety.
