Explain, how can we walk so much easily on the ground.
As we know that nothing is frictionless and so is the ground and our feet, when we walk we push the ground backwards by our foot and the ground in reaction pushes us forward, because of friction present on the ground we are able to push the ground without slipping and hence it is easy to walk on the ground and also pushing it.
