Assignment Help:
Hello,

As a part of a school assignment, I need to conduct a Q & A with an expert in a field of my choosing. The field I have chosen is the "physics of rollercoasters".

If you would care to take a few minutes of your time to answer the following questions to the best of your abilities, your help would be greatly appreciated. Some of the questions may be geared more towards a designer/engineer, but still, please try to answer them.
1. What are the basic physics of roller coasters?
2. How do you program a rollercoaster''s movements?
3. What are some important words and the definitions of those words that relate to roller coaster physics?
4. What is the history of roller coasters?
5. What are some improvements that have been made to rollercoasters since being invented?
6. Do any of the improvements have to do with the physics of rollercoasters?
7. How would you make a roller coaster have the least amount of friction?
8. What types of computers are used for programming a rollercoaster?
9. Has there ever been a rollercoaster that was so dangerous that it had to be torn down?
10. Approximately how much did the most expensive rollercoaster that has ever been built cost?
11. What is your field of expertise pertaining to rollercoasters?

Thank you!
Tim
