Question

You spill a bucket of soapy water on a marble floor accidently. Would it be easier or more difficult for you to walk on the floor now? Why?

Solution

We are able to walk because of the friction present between our feet and the ground. In order to walk, we push the ground in the backward direction with our feet. The force of friction pushes it in the forward direction and allows us to walk.

The force of friction between the ground and feet decreases when there is soapy water spilled on the floor as it acts as a lubricant.

Hence, it becomes difficult to walk on the soapy floor.
