APPLICATIONS In designing a brake system for a bicycle, car, or any other vehicle, it is important to understand the frictional forces involved. For an applied force on the brake pads, how can we determine the magnitude and direction of the resulting friction force?
APPLICATIONS (continued) Consider pushing a box as shown here. How can you determine if it will slide, tilt, or stay in static equilibrium? What physical factors affect the answer to this question?

CHARACTERISTICS OF DRY FRICTION (Section 8.1) Friction is defined as a force of resistance acting on a body which prevents or retards slipping of the body relative to a second body. Experiments show that frictional forces act tangent (parallel) to the contacting surface in a direction opposing the relative motion or tendency for motion.

### What students are saying

• 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.
