The Marble Roller Coaster

This project is about how high a marble needs to start from to successfully make it down a track and through a loop. I chose this project because I thought it would be fun to make a loop and see if I could get a marble to loop the loop. In the end, I did manage to make the marble go around the loop without stopping. This project demonstrated potential and kinetic energy, as well as friction, and was a good learning experience.

  1. Really fun experiment with great applications in the real world for building roller coasters.
