Ferris Wheel: A Ferris wheel is a type of amusement ride consisting of a rotating upright wheel with multiple passenger-carrying components (often referred to as passenger cars, cabins, tubs, capsules, gondolas, or pods) attached to the rim in such a way that as the wheel turns, they are kept upright, usually by gravity. Centripetal Force: Centripetal force is a force that acts on objects to make them follow a curved path. This is the force that keeps a person riding on a Ferris wheel in their seat. Gravitational Force: Gravitational force is the force of attraction between two objects. This force is what keeps a person from falling out of the Ferris wheel.
