Two experimental procedures were performed. The first used a wooden block and a pulley mechanism on a track to determine the coefficient of static friction between the block and the track. The second determined the coefficient of kinetic friction by taking off the pulley system and raising the track by a certain angle where the block would begin to move and continue to move at a uniform speed. This was done for both of the sides of the rectangular block that had a large surface area and a side with a small surface area. The resulting data indicated that the coefficient of static friction is higher than the coefficient of kinetic friction. Also, there was only a .1% difference of between the coefficients of kinetic friction between the two surface areas, which means that the difference in surface area is almost negligible.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
