The Physics of Skiing I have been skiing for about five years and I find it to be one of the most fun and challenging sports there is. A lot of the reason it is so challenging is because of the laws of physics such as gravity and friction. In this essay I will discuss how physics relates to skiing and how this physics makes skiing so fun and challenging. I will also discuss how things like wax and the shape and width of your skis can affect these laws of physics and enhance your skiing.
Why skiing is better than Snowboarding The battle between skiing and snowboarding has been going on for years. Many loyal skiers and boarders have fought for their style of shredding the powder. This controversial topic has torn many friendships apart. Snowboarding participation fell 4.5 percent during the last five years, while skiing grew 6.7 percent, according to the National Ski Areas Association. Skiing is better than snowboarding because skiing is much easier to learn, skiers have more agility
ever before. Many of the outdoor activities that are still participated in today are chosen for recreational purposes but a surprising number of them have more practical roots. A great number of the outdoor activities such as kayaking, hiking, and skiing that people engage in nowadays mainly just for fun were historically used to obtain food, scout out potential dwelling places, and travel long distances. One outdoor activity with historically significant
(Crosser, 1994). Skills in science obtained in water play can stretch from: “How water makes rain?” and “How does water make mud?” This is also the start of the principles of early physics. These principles include: • The force of water and the effects it has when increased. • Gravity will be experienced when water flows downhill. • And the different stages of water such as: solids, liquids and gas. 2. The value of water play for the total development of the learners: • Intellectual: One of the most

It almost ended in disaster. On a downhill street we lost control of the car and smashed into a
