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.
Determining the minimum force required to move an object in static equilibrium
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.
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.
