 Preview: PreRoller Coaster Practice Worksheet
 In partners or alone, using the concepts of gravity and circular motion (as well as kinematics, energy, and forces), design a roller coaster.

 It must have:
 at least one vertical loop (top: calculate minimum velocity to not fall out, and speed car is actually moving, do they need seatbelts?; bottom: calculate how fast is moving and the gforce felt (gforce = Fn/Fg))
 at least one horizontal loop (calculate the gforce felt by the riders halfway through loop)
 at least one hill (first motorized one doesn’t count; calculate velocity at top; will people feel like they are going to fly out of car at the top of the hill? Are seatbelts needed?)
 Numerical values to use:
 Start with 900,000J of potential energy at top of motorized hill, 131m high
 assume 500.J converted to heat energy per meter (saves on friction/heat calculations everywhere)
 no motorized help once car is brought to top of first hill
 the car with two riders is 700.kg
 maximum speed of 240 km/h (67 m/s)
 gforces no greater than 6.0g, and only briefly (largest forces are felt at bottom of curves)
 1800m of track in total from top of motorized hill to very end
 Use triangles to calculate distances along slopes; use circumferences to calculate distances along curves; some estimation is ok for distances.
 Hints:

T 7 

 What you will hand in:
 Sketch of your coaster labeled with heights, radii, distances, etc
 Calculations of speeds and gforces at each critical point (tops, bottoms, etc), remember to consider loss to heat energy (500.J/m)
 Calculate the coefficient of friction needed on the final stretch (and how long is that stretch?) to stop your car

 Lab writeup – do right on the handout:
 10 marks: Do all the sections except the last one (dipole). Label the first section as A, the second as B, etc. You will do A to I, and answer questions #120 as you do these sections.
 5 marks: Add in appropriate formula where they belong.
 5 marks: Write a brief summary on the back of the handout describing key concepts/what you learned from this lab. (Do NOT say “I learned what an equipotential line is.” DO say “I learned that an equipotential line is a line connecting points of equal potential (V).”)

Key points for Lesson 12 Cathode Rays
Lots of solving practice in this section. Set two forces or energies equal to each other and then solve for the variable you are looking for. Even be able to solve for “q/m”.
Deflected? Use: F_{m} = F_{c}
Undeflected? Use: F_{m} = F_{e}
Looking for speed? Use: E_{p} = E_{k}
Magnetic field involved? Use F_{c} = F_{B} or F_{e} = F_{B}
If particles travel parallel to field, then no deflection, so no radius.
Formula:
E_{p} = Vq E_{k} = ½mv^{2} F_{e} = qE F_{c} = mv^{2}/r F_{B} = qvB F_{g} = mg
