Unformatted text preview: Weight F g =ma g a g = 9.81 m/s 2 Comparing Mass and Weight Normal Force The normal force acts on a surface in a direction perpendicular to the surface. F g F f F a F n y x F g,x F g,y , x a f g x F F F F =  + + x ma = , y n g y F F F = y ma = = , n g y F F = Normal Force Friction The quantity that expresses the dependence of frictional forces on the particular surfaces in contact is called the coefficient of friction, . The Coefficient of Friction f n F F = f n F F = Coefficients of Friction You will find this table in your text Coefficients of Friction k k n F F = ,max S s n F F = Coefficient of static friction : k k n F F = ,max S n s F F = Coefficient of kinetic friction : In freebody diagrams, the force of friction is always parallel to the surface of contact. The force of kinetic friction is always opposite the direction of motion. To determine the direction of the force of static friction, use the principle of equilibrium. For an object in equilibrium, the frictional force must point in the direction that results in a net force of zero.
