Looking at your results for part I, do you obtain the same value for the coefficient of static friction for all of the different masses? Explain. - On the first part of the experiment, the coefficient of the static friction for all the different masses were the same for the same sled surface although different surfaces of the three sleds have different coefficient of static friction. The sled with wood surface has the highest coefficient of static friction which is 0.5 despite the different masses, the sled with clear plastic surface has lowest coefficient of static friction 0.1, and the sled with felt surface has 0.2 coefficient of static friction even though the masses were changing.
