RampA ramp is an element of the architecture Or the engineering that allows you to link two places that are located different height. What the ramp offers is a descending or ascending path to move from one space to another through its surface.

For instance: “Be careful that the ramp has a very large incline and you can fall”, “The ramp to get on the bus is broken”, “They should build a ramp at the entrance to this building”.

The ramp, in short, is a inclined plane that is used to ascend or descend through it. Thanks to their arrangement, the ramps can contribute to the movement of a load with less effort.

In supermarkets and shopping centers, for example, the presence of ramps is common to make transit easier with carts full of products. On the other hand, there are certain mechanical ramps that consist of belts with surfaces Made of steel specially designed so that the wheels grip them and do not slip, they are a great way not to deprive those who carry carts to take advantage of the comforts of the escalators.

The ramps, on the other hand, give it greater accessibility to a building. Suppose that, to enter a museum, the only way to access the door is by climbing a staircase of fifty steps. This particularity would make persons with reduced mobility (elderly, individuals who move in a wheelchair, etc.) do not have the possibility to enter the museum.

If in saying edifice if there was a ramp, instead, the entrance would be made more accessible. Those who use a Wheelchair they could go up and down the ramp without great difficulty.

RampIn many cities, local governments have not yet become aware of how difficult it can be for a disabled person to navigate the streets, use public transport and visit certain buildings such as banks and supermarkets without the presence of ramps. We must not forget that not everyone has someone to accompany them and assist them when it comes to overcoming a ladder or an excessively high step; as well as those who can use their two legs have right to walk the streets with freedom, the same should happen for the rest.

For a few decades now, means of transport have usually included ramps that are activated to allow these people to get on and off, although not everything works as it should: between flaws that are not solved immediately and errors in measurement that lead to the manufacture of ramps that are too far from the sidewalk, in many cases the effort ends up looking in vain, since they do not facilitate the mobility of those who must circulate in a wheelchair.

The sports ramps are those that are used for the development of maneuvers in certain disciplines, such as snowboard or the skateboard. With a U-shape (what is known as a half-pipe or half-tube), the competitor slides from the top of the ramp and acquires speed with the fall, performing jumps and pirouettes.

Athletes should take advantage of certain basic concepts of the physical so that the presence of the ramp gives them benefits impossible to achieve otherwise. The main one is the linear momentum, also know as momentum, momentum or momentum, which can be understood in different ways, according to the mechanical theory in question; According to the classical, for example, it is the speed of a body and its mass at any point in time.

In sports that use U-shaped ramps, each trip from one end to another generates an increase in speed, and precisely taking advantage of the momentum is the key to achieving more height, although it is also necessary to avoid speeding that ends up causing the lost of control.
