Physics in Amusement Park


A trip to Wonderla resulted in exploring many concepts like momentum, acceleration, speed, centrifugal force, earth rotation, gravitational force, and energy.

It began with wondering in water slides when five of us started from the same height, traveled the same distance but I reached first. We discovered that mass does matter.

Fear of falling in Roller Coaster ride led to the discussion on centrifugal force and all other topics.

Water used as the break in all the water slides led to the discussion on friction and other topics.

Had fun to explore physics after experiencing it.
