The Sheikra

by Genesis Garcia


Submitted : Spring 2015

Utilizing the given information on the roller coaster called Sheikra from Busch Gardens on Tampa, FL, we were able to figure out the maximum speed using the kinetic energy formula assuming that no energy was lost to friction. After this, we used that velocity to determine the position of the roller coaster depending on the time, and then found the derivative of that formula to find the velocity of the roller coaster as a function of time.
