Roller Coasters and Your Body

 

This dictionary will help you.

Your body feels acceleration in a funny way. When a roller coaster car is speeding up, the actual force acting on you is the seat pushing your body forward. But, because of your body’s inertia, you feel a force in front of you, pushing you into the seat. You always feel the push of acceleration coming from the opposite direction of the actual force accelerating you.
