Physics of snowboarding, dud



hen im on the mou, (short for mountains) there's nothing better than whippin the gnar gnar dud. Snowboarding is all about gravity. When i'm glazing through the fresh powd i'm always accelerating at 9.81 m/s^2. (tbh that's all the physics i know hold on let me try to finish this.)

All of the times that i've been snoarding (short for snowboarding, you wouldn't know) I would rather go on the steepest slope. But will I accelerate faster on the steep slope or the bunny (bobby) slope? Lol if you thought the steeper one youre wrong because i'd be accelerating at 9.81 m/s^2 on either slope. And when I'm flying down the slo (short for slope, sorry for the confusion) there would be less friction than if it was a paved hill. I don't know exactly why but it transfers (not creates) less internal energy because of a smaller force of friction.

Snowboarding is sweet dud.
