How to Drive a Car on a Snowy Slope
Ogawara, Yasuo
Physics Teacher, v54 n8 p498-499 Nov 2016
When I was a freshman at Tokyo University of Science, my senpai (upper-class student mentor) took me to a certain skiing ground in his car, which was equipped with standard tires. He tried to enter the parking area there, but his car could not climb a short slope leading to the entrance. I would like to describe here how he dealt with the problem and present a physical analysis.
