Have you ever wanted to ride horses, but didn’t have the guts to? Luckily, I have a solution for anyone who longs to feel the silky fur of a beautiful stallion; go ride the Swift Horse Racer! Technology has enhanced every element of the way the Swift Horse Racer was designed. The entrance has some jockeys and horses, and you will feel as though you are gliding across a grassland on a swift horse for 90 meters. Once you sit in your seat and fasten your seat belt, the gate will open. BOOM! A gun shot will shoot off, and you 're on the go, as the Swift Horse Racer uses the work of a hydraulic launch system. A catch-car connects to the bottom of the cart train, and a vast winch winds the cable when it’s turned by a motor. To start, the cable pulls it down the track, then in a few seconds the catch car releases the carts and the roller coaster zips up the first hill. Once the roller coaster is animated, it will not stop until the brakes are applied at the end of the ride. This follows Newton 's First Law of Motion, or the Law of Inertia. Newton’s First Law states that, an object in motion will stay in motion, and an object at rest will stay at rest, unless acted on by an unbalanced force. That means the roller coaster will stay at a constant speed and have inertia until another force, that is unequal, makes it change its velocity. When an object has balanced forces, it will stay at a constant velocity. On the Swift Horse Racer, the first hill is the most gargantuan. The greatest potential energy is at the top of the hill, but as you glide down the hill in freefall, the potential energy transforms into mostly kinetic energy. However, the coaster can not have more energy than what it initially started with (as…show more content…
All fun things have to come to an end at some point! Normally, roller coasters use breaks that come in contact with the speeding roller coaster cars. Those breaks rely on friction, which causes the kinetic energy to be converted into heat, and stops the roller
