If the center of mass shifts off the point of support even slightly, the skater will struggle to balance.
Experimental evidence for superionic water ice using shock compression
The challenge of balancing is what makes ice skating so difficult for many people, especially beginners. Any movement across the ice causes imbalance and feels precarious.
Even for advanced skaters, the center of mass adds difficulty to specific moves in other ways. For example, well-known figure skaters like Evgenia Medvedeva and Alina Zagitova frequently perform jumps with one or both arms over their head.
These jumps employ greater technical difficulty due to the change in where the mass of the arms is located. Velocity is composed of both speed and direction and describes either motion in a straight line linear or in rotation angular. Linear velocity enables leaps and jumps off the ice.
A review of the physics of ice surface friction and the development of ice skating.
For example, the skaters push down on the ice with their blade and, in response, the ice pushes up on the skate with the same strength as the force of the blade. With the boost of vertical velocity, the skater launches upward into their jump.
