Question

suppose you start a roller coaster car at the top of a hill with a height of 70 m and go around a loop- the- loop that has its bottom at ground level and has a radius of 15 m. If you weigh 70 kg. Calculate how heavy you will feel

**a.at the top of the loop**

**b. at one of the sides of the loop**

Remember, the weight you feel is the normal force.

Answer #1

A roller coaster car with a mass of 920.5 kg starts from rest at
the top of a 47.1 m hill labeled h1. The car travels to the bottom
of the hill and continues up the next hill that is 12.5 m high and
labeled h2.
a.) Ignoring friction, what is the speed of the roller coaster
car at the bottom of the hill?
b.) Ignoring friction, what is the speed of the roller coaster
car at the top of...

A roller coaster car of mass 900 kg when released from rest at
point A (height h above the ground) slides along the track
and inside the loop of radius 15.0 m. The car never loses contact
with the track.
Draw below a free body diagram for the car at the bottom of the
loop. If the speed of the car at the bottom of the loop (point B)
is 25 m/s, what is the normal force at that point?...

A roller coaster car of mass 800 kg when released from rest at
point A (height h above the ground) slides along the track
and inside the loop of radius 16.0 m. The car never loses contact
with the track.
Draw below a free body diagram for the car at the top of the
loop. If the speed of the car at the top of the loop (point C) is
17 m/s, what is the normal force at that point?...

A roller-coaster car may be represented by a block of mass 50.0
kg . The car is released from rest at a height h = 48.0 m above the
ground and slides along a frictionless track. The car encounters a
loop of radius R = 16.0 m at ground level, as shown. As you will
learn in the course of this problem, the initial height 48.0 m is
great enough so that the car never loses contact with the
track....

Suppose a roller-coaster car is moving 31.3 [m/s] at the bottom
of the first hill, and has an effective (rolling) friction
coefficient 0.01 as it moves along the track. Predict how fast it
would be at the top of the next hill, that is 30 [m] higher and 110
[m] farther along the track.
This is on Earth, so use g =
9.81 [N/kg]

A roller-coaster car (mass = 988 kg including passengers) is
about to roll down a track. The diameter of the circular loop is
17.2 m and the car starts out from rest 41.0 m above the lowest
point of the track. Ignore friction and air resistance. where x =
41.0 m and y = 17.2 ma)
a)What is the force exerted on the car by the track at the top
of the loop? ___kN
b)From what minimum height above the...

A new roller coaster contains a loop-the-loop in which the car
and rider are completely upside down. If the radius of the loop is
17.6 m, with what minimum speed must the car traverse the loop so
that the rider does not fall out while upside down at the top?
Assume the rider is not strapped to the car. (Give answer to the
nearest 0.1 m/s)

The picture above shows the launch and first hills of a roller
coaster. The cars are launched with some initial velocity,
vi, go down a hill of height h1 = 4.13 m and
over the first peak with height h2 = 7.69 m above the
lowest point on the track.
The shape of the first peak is a circle with a radius of R =
5.01 m.
The ride is designed so that the riders feel weightless at the
top...

Modern roller coasters have
vertical loops like the one shown in the figure. The radius of
curvature is smaller at the top than on the sides so that the
downward centripetal acceleration at the top will be greater than
the acceleration due to gravity, keeping the passengers pressed
firmly into their seats.
A) What is the speed of the roller coaster in m/s at the top of
the loop if the radius of curvature there is 11 m and the...
