“Kevin S. Huang, currently a student of Robert Kennedy at Centennial High School in Ellicott, considers the dynamics of determining the minimum initial velocity to keep a circular (vertical) roller coaster cart on track as it loops. Kevin offers the case in which there is no friction and then challenges students to consider the case where there is friction. This is the first publication of a Modeling Scenario by a high school student, an exceptional student. Congratulations Kevin!”
