Timeline

11/17: We are going to sketch the roller coaster on paper and using the physics principle of conservation of energy, we will determine the various dimensions of the roller coaster

                    -height of the top of the rollercoaster
                    
                    -distance between the top and the beginning of the loop
                    
                    -the height of the loop
             
                    -the radius of the circles that create the circloid loop

11/24: We are going to begin sketching on SolidWorks

12/1: Finish designing the roller coaster on SolidWorks

12/8: Animate the rolller coaster and work out any kinks to ensure "safety" of the the ride
