Physics of Skiing



Now that the winter has arrived, ski season begins. And physics is involed everywhere in physics. Especially with our current unit about power and work. Work is the process of moving an object by applying a force. Power is the rate at which work is done. When skiing, the ski lift does work on you. Everytime you go up the ski lift, it is lifting you and your mass up the mountain. Also when people get hurt, the ski patrol does work on you. Because when you are in the little sled that carries you down the mountain, the ski partol has to pull you down the mountain, thus doing work on you. As you can see physics is applied in many ways while skiing.
