Roller Coaster Designer Program fod the TI-82/83

Roller Coaster Designer program, by Tony Wayne, for the TI-82/83 calculators will design a simple roller coaster. The user inputs certain values and the program outputs results like g's felt, and velocity. The program is text based -for now. The program is free. Give away to anyone. Just leave my name on it.

About the program.

The program is in a group file. It consists of 7 smaller programs. They are Bank, Coaster, Drop, Loop, Review, Rise, Straight. COASTER is the main program. This is the one to run. The others support Coaster.

A future version may include a vertical corkscrew and a graphical review program of the ride. (Perhaps when I get a TI-83 calculator.)
