Ryan's blog post 2



Physics is all around us in everything we do. Another activity that I enjoy on the weekends is to play hockey. Hockey is a very fun sport and every movement in hockey involves physics. When a hockey player skates on the ice there is so little friction which makes them glide across the ice but the player will slow down after time due to that slow friction acting upon the skates. Also friction acts upon the the puck as it is shot. The puck will glide on the ice but friction slows the the puck down as it goes farther and farther. Another way physics is in hockey is As a player glides across the ice his energy is transferred from potential to kinetic energy. As he slowly increases speed his potential goes down and kinetic goes down. But as he slows down his kinetic goes down and potential goes back up. This is how physics is involved with hockey.
