Description:A fun physics text for younger students. The Virginia Instructors of Physics has plenty of other stuff on the website that physics fans will want to check out, too.

From the site:

This section of the Physics Pavilion will discuss some of the principles involved in the design of a roller coaster. It is intended for the middle or high school teacher. Physics students may find the information helpful as well. Many of the concepts can be applied to topics other than roller coasters. Some sections will use the Roller Coaster Simulator, RCS. The included activities are hands on cookbook type. Each section includes background topics that should have been taught previously.

This book assumes some rudimentary knowledge of physical science. It is a simplified view of what design considerations and science a mechanical/civil design engineer must know when designing a roller coaster.
