# What is not friction?

## What is not friction?

It opposes motion, meaning if something is sliding on the floor, friction is the force that makes it eventually come to a stop. In a world without friction, the object would continue to slide forever, if not acted on by another force.

What is an example of no friction?

A world without friction would be unlivable. That’s because ice has a much lower coefficient of friction than concrete. In other words, ice is much smoother than concrete, so it has less resistance, causing your feet to slip and slide. The same example can be applied to vehicles.

### What’s the opposite of friction?

What is the opposite of friction?

release drop
dropping letting go

What does not affect friction?

Friction does not depend on the amount of surface area in contact between the moving bodies or (within certain limits) on the relative speed of the bodies. It does, however, depend on the magnitude of the forces holding the bodies together.

## Can we stand without friction?

Walking without friction is worse than walking on ice. You can stand peacefully, uninterrupted, even if there’s zero friction. However once you try to walk or run, some friction is essential as you can see inFigure 2.

What are three examples of using friction?

10 examples of friction in our daily life

• Driving of a a vehicle on a surface.
• Applying brakes to stop a moving vehicle.
• Skating.
• Writing on notebook/ blackboard.
• Flying of aeroplanes.
• Drilling a nail into wall.
• Sliding on a garden slide.

### What will happen if there is no friction 5 examples?

1: You will not be able to write. 2: No riding cycle, bike and not even a car or bus. 3: No machines in companies and so no mechanics. 4: You would have not been able to sit, walk, run or dance.

What is the symbol of friction?

This constant ratio is called the coefficient of friction and is usually symbolized by the Greek letter mu (μ). Mathematically, μ = F/L.

## What are the types friction?

There are two main types of friction, static friction and kinetic friction. Static friction operates between two surfaces that aren’t moving relative to each other, while kinetic friction acts between objects in motion.

Which type of friction is the weakest?

Rolling friction is the weakest kind of friction. It is the force that resists the motion of an object rolling across a surface.

### What two factors affect friction?

The frictional force between two bodies depends mainly on three factors: (I) the adhesion between body surfaces (ii) roughness of the surface (iii) deformation of bodies.

What would be easier without friction?

Without friction, energy transfer would be easier and stopping motion would be more difficult. If there was no friction, there would be no force slowing down motion when two objects rubbed against one another.

## What are bad examples of friction?

The worst example of friction is a newly oiled mechanism. Liquid on liquid movement is also a bad example of friction. Friction can be harmful or helpful How does friction affect a car?

Which situation is the best example of friction?

One of the best examples is slowing down the vehicles on the road during the rainy season . Friction is a natural phenomenon that occurs when there is contact between two objects. Where there is friction, there will be a loss of energy.

### What are some examples of useful friction?

We are able to walk

• Our glasses stay on our nose because of friction
• nail stay in place fixed
• etc
• Brakes in-car work based on friction
