For our final project, we decided to design a basic loop roller coaster using SolidWorks.
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
