Friction Force and Resistive  Force When an object is in motion on a surface or  through a viscous medium, there will be a  resistance to the motion. This is due to the interactions between the object  and its environment. Frictional Force  arises when the resistance  come from  surface contact . Resistive Force  arises from  the motion  of  the object  through a viscous medium

Friction Forces Frictional forces can be categorized as:  Static Friction  and  Kinetic Friction . Static Friction  arises when the object  is not in motion. Kinetic Friction  occurs when the  object is in motion.

The Physics of Frictional  Force Friction arises from the contact of rough  surfaces – the contact is made at a few  locations where peaks of the material  touch. Frictional force occurs because One peak physically blocks the motion of  a peak from the opposing surface –  through electrical interaction between  atoms and molecules in the peak. Chemical bonding of opposing peaks  (“spot welds”) as they come into contact.

    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.
