In this lesson students will learn about friction, the difference between static and kinetic friction and how to solve problems involving friction.
Shows how to calculate the coefficient of friction using an object that is in constant motion.
Illustrates how friction apply to dragging everyday objects with a demonstration.
Calculate the coefficient of static and kinetic friction, understand the nature of friction. Requires basic trigonometry and algebra.
Reviews sliding and static friction, the coefficient of friction, and calculations of resultant acceleration when friction is taken into account.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Friction.
This is an activity for students to complete while reading the Friction Concept
Discover the role mass plays in motion along inclined planes.
Discover the different type of friction and what they mean for movement.
Discover the physics behind this famous parlor trick.
Explore how much force is needed to overcome the forces of friction.
This study guide looks at Newton's three laws, free body diagrams, and types of forces, including the force of gravity, normal force, and friction force.
