There are two basic types of speed skates: Short Track and Long Track. Long track boots are lower cut than short track boots, and the blade is also somewhat flatter than a short track blade.

Why can you skate on ice?

When the person keeps the skates on the ice, the ice melts due to the pressure exerted by the weight of the person. This forms a groove in which you can skate. The moment the skate moves ahead, the ice behind solidifies again. Thus, it is possible to skate on ice. I think that it's because when you step onto the you create friction, and friction also heats things up causing the ice to melt below the metal blade. Water is like a lubricant (that is why most hydroslides have a continuous stream of water going down them so you can slide down more easily), so it creates less friction between the blade and the ice allowing you to skate on it. The water soon freezes again.

Essentially a turbine looks like a jet engine in reverse, where steam, gas, or liquid is forced through at speed or high pressure to turn a central rotor. if we cut one open the turbine looks like a series of fans inside a tube. Each fan from the from of the tube gets progressively smaller pitched blades.In between each moving blade is a static fan blade to redirect the wake of the previous blade section and increase the speed of the turbine rotor.
