Physics is everywhere in hockey, from how the players speed up, to how the ice has a low frictional coefficient, so everything slides. The skates are sharpened so that there is a smaller area of contact between the skates and the ice, so that when the skater tries to turn, the smaller contact area focuses the force of the skater into the ice, giving them more turning power. The puck is also governed by physics. Every time it is hit, since the ice has a near 0 coefficient of friction, it doesn't really slow down at all. When the puck is in the air is is accelerating at -9.8m/s^2 in the up and down direction. When the player wants to speed up, he uses the sharp edge of the skate to dig into the ice, which then gives him a place to push off of. Depending on which way his skates are pointing, the motion can be described by using vectors. Basically, everything in hockey is physics.

In a lot of ways actually. everything is related to science and maths, logic and understanding, ei. the spread of the ballance to receive a centered spin, the body parts used during skating, the steps to pull yourself high enough to get a loop or an axel, even doubles or even triples.

friction, when you skate you exert force a force from the edge into the ice. also in jumps or spins there is angular momentum. "figure skating is a thrilling and beautiful sport." "are you sure it doesn't just make you feel beautiful?" "so what if it does, what's so horrible about that?" "I like figure skating because if you don't want to talk to anybody you just go to the rink and skate your feelings away." Sincerely, Jessica Clark

these are the basic rules of figure skating

The basic rules of Figure Skating are to not fall when you jump, land your jumps by doing a full rotation and not over rotating your jumps, when you spin don't move around to much, when you do a lunge make sure your foot is oven your head. Pretty much,try your best to not fall. if you do get back up right away

Well in ISI (International Skating Institute) skating there are levels ranging from pre-alpha(easiest) to Delta(hardest) along with freestyle classes (most rinks offer 1-6). There is solo along with Synchro (synchronized skating) and there are different judges guidelines and competitions for both. Even though it looks like the pros just glide along the ice and jump and spin, it takes balance, dedication, strength, stamina, and talent to become a figure skater.

If you are referring to the specific moves, which are usually referred to as "elements," then there are three categories. These are jumps, spins, and field moves (the "connecting" elements). The jumps are the loop, flip, lutz, toe loop and axel. Each of these has a single, double, and triple variety, and some men do a quadruple toe loop. Common spins are the scratch (upright), layback, back spin, sit, camel, flying camel, illusion, and Biellman. Connecting moves are steps like turns and twizzles, and positions like spirals and leg pulls.
