physics of water tubing



for the fact that summer is coming up faster than we think, I thought it would be nice to talk about one of my favorite summer activities, water tubing. Momentum is a huge aspect. many of us know that momentum= mass x velocity. this explains that it is much easier for a smaller person such as myself to get pulled around compared to my dad. Although it may be easier to pull me, my dad has much more momentum. Another aspect that comes into play is forces. because the motor of the boat applies the boat to move, the boat applies a force of the rope which applies a force on the tube which the tube is then pulled through the water. All water activities are my favorite part about summer, I cant wait!
