Physics Philosophy - A simple question

If I move slower when going up hill, why don't I move faster when going down hill?

But... you do go faster when you're running down hill. Try it again. On some steep slopes, you'll notice you go so fast that you start ''bouncing'' while running down and next thing you know, you can sprain your ankle or even break a leg. It happened to me. Just crouch and you'll go down slower. Its the same with vehicles, they'll go faster down a slope.

I cant fathom why you didnt notice this.

Stop gaslighting him. The downhill effect is nowhere near as pronounced as the uphill effect and vehicles do not coast AT ALL. The increase in speed going downhill is VERY minimal, though if the slope is steep enough you can "fly" down.

 

The reason for the dramatic difference...who knows?

Yeah vehicles should definitely accelerate faster downhill, they don't currently

The reason is - have you ever ran downhill? It's like a constant struggle NOT to lawndart your head into the hillside. I'm sure the survivor in this game is being...cautious.
