Contact Forces: Friction Defined as the force between: • two surfaces in contact (still or in motion) Friction derives from chemical bonding and surface roughness • a medium and a moving object (e.g. air acting on a flying body) STATIC FRICTION KINETIC FRICTION

STATIC FRICTION KINETIC FRICTION It is the force that resist motion. It is always directed // to the two surfaces and perpendicular to the normal force F friction F N F friction friction F N Appears as soon as an object is moving. It opposes to the motion, e.g. it is a vector opposite to the velocity. v F k F N F k F N v F friction //
