snowboardin n physics



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.

I've always wanted to try snowboarding -- I used to wakeboard back when I was younger and lived in Austin... need to get out some day and see how it works in the snow!
