Did you know that most of the rides here use force and motion? Just like the rollercoaster. At the top of the ride before the drop the cart has the most potential energy and while its going down it has the most kinetic energy but no matter what the total energy is always the same. M/S2 is meteres per second squared and is a international unit of acceleration. We use formulas like that every day to test the acceleration of the rides.
When we play tug o war we use two kinds of forces. when everyone is holding on before you start tugging there is a balanced force between the rope and all the players but once you start and one side is creating greater force to pull it to their side it becomes unbalanced. We see forces everywhere in this park creating all kinds of ride. Force is just a push or pull creating motion, or keeping an object still. When an object is a rest with a balanced force its position stays but when’s theirs an unbalanced force their is a displacement. When the workers here move parts of a ride they have to use force to change it’s position. They also have to deal with friction from the surfaces they move on.
Newton’s are how me measure force being applied. Like on the roller coaster. If it is a balanced force then the newton’s on each push/pull will be the same. Without knowing how to measure force the velocity of the coaster might not be right. Everything on earth is pulled by gravity so when we short fireworks every night they have tours more newton’s to be able to push against gravity in the opposite direction. Here on the dance floor their are all kinds of forces. -clown dude
