Problem 94QP

The blades of ice skates arc quite thin, so the pressure exerted on ice by a skater can be substantial. Explain how this facilitates skating on ice.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Pressure & Wind: Forces on the Atmosphere  Newton’s First Law of Motion o “A force is required to make something move”  Pressure- force exerted per unit area due to the weight of the air (units of pressure = millibars mb) o Ex: more water in tank A = more pressure than tank B which has less water  If both tanks were connected the water would travel from the higher pressure tank to the lower tank by net force 1.Pressure gradient force- source of all wind  Pressure gradient = difference in pressure/distance between points o Wind blows high to low and increases with a larger pressure gradient o Larger pressure gradient the faster the wind will blow o On a weather
