Ryan's blog post 1



Physics is in places of the earth and the activities we enjoy. One activity that I like to do on the weekends is the snowboard. Snowboarding has a lot of physics in it. As a snowboard goes down the hill it slides on the snow. Friction is the then added to the board and tries to slow down the board but as the hill gets steaper friction has less actions on the board. Due to the fact that a snowboarder goes faster farther down the hill. Also as a snowboarder accelerates its potential energy decreases and the kinetic energy increases. If a snowboarder wants to stop he carves to the side of the board to catch as much friction as possible to slow them down. This is how physics is related to snowboarding.
