I was reading this interesting article on different varieties of roller coaster loops, and I know nothing about calculus or ODEs, but I was wondering what the constant-g loop in section 3.2 would actually look like for some typical initial velocity. Is it conceivably possible for a rider to experience 1 g throughout an entire loop in a 1 g environment? I would have to disagree with the author, then, because it would truly be an interesting sensation.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
