The cars are pulled by a chain to the top of the highest hill along the track. Then they are
released from the chain. As the front car begins its decent, the unpowered cars have
almost no speed and only a small acceleration.As morecars reach thedownwardsl
Acceleration is measured in "g", where 1 g corresponds to the vertical acceleration force
due to gravity. Roller coasters experience accelerations of 2.
The Tidal Wave works by some of the most fundamental principles of physics.
Newton's First and S
the difference between velocity and acceleration. Velocity is how quickly an object
changes it position. The higher the velocity the quicker an object travels between two
locations. "phrases like,'.how fast., how quickly,' are used to describe velocity."
