Snowboarding is my favorite thing to do. Carving into the mountain and gliding down its smooth surface makes me smile. Physics plays a huge role in snowboarding. Newton's third law, any force has equal but opposite force, directly applies to snowboarding. When carving on a snowboard, the rider exerts a force on one edge of the snowboard and the snow on the mountain counteracts this force allowing the snowboarder to carve into the mountain. Being abble to understand physics and apply it to things such as snowboarding has improved my life alot.
