Hallo,im writing a program in the FORTRAN language
and how fast a rollercoaster is going when it goes down a user entered
hill.Also, providing the output of the cars velocity and the number of g's
on the rider.This program im going to send to a competion in jan.
if you could plz help me out by sending me a detailed look into the
physics of a rollercoaster.Like the formulas that would be used with a
rollercoaster and could u give me a description of the varibles and whats it
doing in the equation.If u could think of any way i could
make my program better,could u plz send it to me any ideas is appreciated.
This is a rather involved problem... May I suggest that you check out this
