2 5-1 Applications of Newton’s Laws Involving Friction Friction exists between all solid surfaces. When we try to slide an object across another surface, the microscopic bumps impede the motion . At the atomic level, the atoms on a bump of one surface come so close to the atoms of the other surface that electrical forces between the atoms can interact to form chemical bonds. Other causes might be steric hindrance (roughness of the surface).
3 Applications of Newton’s Laws Involving Friction When a body is in motion along rough a surface, the force of kinetic friction acts opposite to the direction of the body’s velocity. The magnitude of the force of kinetic friction depends on the nature of the two sliding surfaces. For a given surface, experiment shows that the force is approximately proportional to the normal force between the two surfaces .

### 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.
