Penny Board Mishap
Look at Me!
This is what it looks like to ride a penny board.
This is a picture of what a penny board looks like.
This is another picture of what a penny board looks like.
The Science of it
When the penny board is in motion it has momentum. Momentum is a mass in motion, the amount of momentum an object has depends on 2 variables - mass (weight) and velocity (speed).
When I was riding on my penny board (momentum) I hit a crack in the side walk that stopped my penny board, sense I was moving forward and my board suddenly stopped, my body wanted to continue. With forward momentum and that made me fall off my board.
Science of it
Gravity is a force which try's to pull two objects towards each other. Anything which has a mass (weight) also has a gravitational pull, the more massive and object is the stronger its gravitational pull is.
Sense I was no longer standing on my board gravity was pulling me to the ground, and I skinned up my knee cause that was the first thing to hit the ground.
2. I wonder if I was going slower would I have been able to catch myself?
3. I wonder if I could have jumped over the crack?
4. I wonder if I was going first I would have seen it?
