  • the purpose of sweeping in curling is to warm up the ice to reduce friction, making the stone move straighter, kinetic sliding friction is used in curling.
  • sweep sweep
  • When the stone is slid on the ice, the stone is putting force on the ice and the ice is also putting force back on the stone
  • gravity is not used much in the sport but the players must stay low to the ice to have a better center of gravity so they don't fall
  • F norm
  • F app
  • F fric
  • The stone slides forward on the ice
  • Acceleration: when the stone is slid down the ice it stays at a constant speed, when the player sweeps in front of the stone the ice loses friction and causes the stone to accelerate
  • Speed: 1-4 meters per second
  • Velocity: the velocity of the stone is 2 m·s -1
