Forces at the Funfair

‘Forces at the Funfair’ is an interactive, investigative computer game that enables you to explore the effect of changes in several variables on the motion of a rollercoaster car.

By adjusting the materials used and the design of the rollercoaster car, you have the opportunity to investigate the effects of friction (rolling resistance and air resistance) on the motion of the vehicle and use your understanding of forces to improve on the design of the car.
