Author:Web Feats Workshop II
Description: Carousels are as reliant on the laws of motion as roller coasters. Let's take a ride on the new Bear Mountain Carousel at Bear Mountain State Park in New York. After enjoying the ride, take the data that has been collected and use the applet to explore the math behind this amusement park ride. This workshop was supported by the National Science Foundation through a grant to Duke University for the PostCALC Project and by the The United States Military Academy.
