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

Answer

We are able to walk easily on the ground because of the friction in between the floor and our feet

On a soapy floor, since the floor is now more smooth, friction will be less

Due to less friction between the floor and our feet, it will be more difficult for us to walk
