```							While walking on ice, one should take smaller steps because the smaller the steps are, the smaller, the backward and forward forces, which prevents you, to fall or slip or we can say that itprovodeslarger friction.

```							Phenomenon of slipping while walking on ice	Why ice is slippery? Ice is not slippery. Rather the water layer formed (due to rubbing action of our feet) over ice surface makes it slippery	 Why water layer is slippery? water-ice combination will have very less viscous effect which makes it easy to move and more slippageWhy small steps? Now to understand this better, we have to look at the phenomenon of walking. While walking we actually try drag our feet so that we can move forward. In this process we actually generate lots off friction between the floor and our feet. So, as we discussed above about the phenomenon of slipping, to minimize the slipping on ice we need to minimize the water formation below our feet. To minimize water formation, we need to drag our feet less. And to drag our feet less, we need to take small steps. In other words, we need to take small steps. Hence what we are doing by taking small steps to avoid slip on ice? we are ensuring the smaller drag that is smaller friction.
