Kinetic Frictional Forces Once a force is applied to an object that exceeds F s max , the object begins to move, and static frictional forces no longer apply. The moving object does still experience a frictional force, but of a different nature. We call this force the kinetic frictional force. The kinetic frictional force always counteracts the motion of the object, and

Unformatted text preview: is independent of speed. No matter the speed of the object (as long as v≤ 0 ) it experiences the same frictional force. Also, for the same reasons as explained with static friction, the kinetic frictional force is proportional to the normal force: F k = μ k F N...
