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
