Download the Sensor Kinetics Pro app. After Oaks Park:Help with your Vertical Circle ride: For your vertical circle ride, you are going to use Physics formulas to calculate the centripetal acceleration. The radii of the rides you can find on the Oaks Park Data site (Link at the top of this page). To find the periods for the rides that go in a circle, you can look at your accelerometer data and use cleverness. Once you have the centripetal acceleration, you will need to be able to compare that intelligently to the accelerometer data you collected. Overview of a Vertical Circle ride:<video>2.

Help with your Linear Acceleration ride:For your linear acceleration ride, you are going to use Video Analysis in LoggerPro (On a PC or a Mac at school, or there is a way to install it at home - ask me) to measure the acceleration of the ride. You then need to be able to intelligently compare the accelerometer data to the calculated accelerations from LoggerPro. Overview of a Linear Acceleration Ride:<video> 1.

Comparing video analysis to Accelerometer data: (Scrambler)Help with your Energy ride:For your Energy ride, you are going to take pictures of the energy ride, and use LoggerPro to find the elevations of the ride at three different points. We know their initial height from which the ride starts, and we then use conservation of energy formulas to calculate what the velocities should be at the different elevations you found. Finally you can use LoggerPro to measure the speed of the ride at those different elevations. Then you will need to intelligently compare the calculated velocities to the actual measured velocities. You don't have to ride the ride or measure the acceleration of the ride to do this. Adrenaline Peak is really the better ride to choose, in my opinion. Overview of an Energy Ride: <video> 1.
