Introduction to C - Programming Assignment #3 Due date: Please consult WebCourses for your section Objectives 1. To learn how to use loops to solve problems. 2. To learn how to read information from files to help speed program testing. Problem A: Roller Coaster Height Restriction (height.c) All roller coasters have height restrictions. In designing a coaster, the founders of UCF want to hire you to do some background work. In particular, they would like you to produce a chart that shows the height restriction for various different heights of the coaster. In particular, the height of the coaster can be used to calculate the maximum velocity of the coaster. The following set of equations can be used to aid the calculation: =( . ) h 4 9ms2 t2 , where h represents the height of the coaster and t represents the amount of time to fall from the top of the coaster to the bottom. = . v 9 8ms2t , where v represents the maximum velocity of the coaster for the specific value of t designated by the first equation. Note that for these equations, we want height to be measured in meters, velocity to be measured in meters/sec and time to be measured in seconds. For a given maximum velocity (measured in meters/second), to calculate the minimum height of the rider in inches, we must take this maximum velocity, take its square root and multiply by twelve: = MinHeightinches 9v , where v is the same as defined the previous equation. For this program, ask the user for a minimum possible height of a roller coaster and a maximum possible height, in meters, and output for each meter in between, the minimum height (in inches) for a rider of that coaster. Input Specification 1. Both the minimum and maximum possible heights of the coaster will be positive integers in between 5 and 100 (meters), inclusive. The minimum is guaranteed to be less than or equal to the maximum. Output Specification The output should consist of a chart with the following column headers: Coaster Height(meters) Minimum Height(inches)

-------------------- ---------------------- The following lines should have one line per coaster height (thus there should be high – low + 1 of these lines, where low and high are the bounds entered by the user for the minimum and maximum possible coaster height.) The coaster height should be printed as an integer and the minimum height to ride the coaster should be printed as a real number rounded to 2 decimal places. Output Samples Two sample outputs of running the program are included below. Note that these samples are NOT a comprehensive test. You should test your program with different data than is shown here based on the specifications given above. Sample Run #1 What is the minimum coaster height? 10
