Lecture 4 Purdue University, Physics 220 5 Friction Magnitude of frictional force is proportional to the normal force. F kinetic = μ k N μ k coefficient of kinetic friction F static μ s N μ s coefficient of static friction Be Careful! Static friction , can be any value up to μ s N Direction always opposes motion
