Hello, my name is Ian and i enjoy skateboarding. This year i decided to take physics and while learning about the concepts of motion I realized these concepts are directly related to skateboarding. Physics can be applied to everything, the understanding and comprehension of physics can also help me in my progresion of skating. To move while skateboarding the rider uses the force of pushing their foot against the ground to increase their velocity. The greater force applied the more velocity is achieved. In the following link is a video of a dog skateboarding, You'll notice how the dog applies a force to the ground with it's legs to create motion and increase velocity. The more frequent the dog pushes the more velocity is achieved.
