Friction Forces —Ac t || surface of contact between 2 bodies. — Oppose relative sliding motion of the surfaces or the tendency for such motion to start. Dry Friction (approximate force laws): Kinetic (Sliding) Friction force: f k = ± k N ± k = coefficient of kinetic friction N = normal contact force at the surfaces Static (Sticking) Friction force: f s ² ± s N ± s =

Unformatted text preview: For any given pair of surfaces: k < s Rolling Resistance ("Friction") Opposes rolling motion along a surface. Due to slight deformation of the surface and/or the rolling object as it rolls. Rolling Resistance force: f r = r N r = coefficient of rolling resistance Usually: r << k...
