snow shoes are more effective for walking on snow than ordinary shoes, why? give me answer in breif plzz
This is because a snowshoes has a greater surface area in contact with the snow due to which there is less pressure on the snow. Due to this the snowshoes do not sink much in soft snow and it is easy to walk on it. On the other hand, an ordinary shoe has a small surface area in contact with the soft snow and so exerts a greater pressure on the snow. Due to this greater pressure, the ordinary shoes tend to sink deep into the snow making it difficult for the wearer to walk on the snow.
