    Hint: I’m looking for a VERY specific answer, so while yes it’s technically because of friction, that’s not specific enough for me.

    Heat creates an ever so thin layer of water which you slip on, if I remember correctly.

    You are correct, except recently people found that answer to be quite inaccurate. Based on basic testing, the water created from melted ice doesn’t exactly explain how we slip on ice apparently.

    Meh. I may never come into contact with enough ice to slip on for my entire life.

    It has to do with friction, the heat then creates a thin liquid. Which human can’t get traction on, therefore we fall on our faces

    does this have to do with particle theory and inter-molecular forces?

    *Laughs in amount of times I’ve had boots on and tried shortcutting through a parking lot covered in ice just to fall on my a** and act like I did it on purpose*
