Description

Used by educators everywhere to bring motion Physics to life in the classroom, Coaster Physics is now optimized for iOS 8 and for the latest iPhones and iPads.

What are the laws of Physics governing the motion of a roller coaster? How are speed and acceleration related? How does the g-force change at different points along the track?

Design and ride your very own realistic roller coaster, and see how quantities like speed, acceleration, energy and g-force change as you ride along the track.

FEATURES

• Contains both the iPhone and iPad versions of the app.

• The amazingly powerful track editor lets you create and ride just about any roller coaster track you can dream of. You can never have too many zero-g rolls!

• Easily share tracks via email, iMessage or AirDrop (on supported devices) to simplify collaboration between students and educators.

• Ride your roller coasters in eye-popping 3D using any pair of old school comic book 3D glasses.
