Sliding on Ice

#PolarSkin PolarSkin Ice Sheets work for the same reason you can slide on ice. Sort of. Water is a phase change material with a melting point of 32F. Just above this, at 33F, it's a liquid, and just below at 31F it's a solid. Elementary science? Nope Sliding on ice becomes less of an issue as the temperature falls well past 32F. Why? First, assume that an object (let's use a tire) is the same temperature as the snow and ice. As the tires pass over the snow and ice you
